    Mmmm! I made this over the weekend as a project---I made some energy bars for my fiance and had figs left over. This is wonderful, VERY fast and VERY easy!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 12 ripe fresh figs, halved lengthwise
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar (you might want to add more...I did!)
    • 1 cup blanched slivered almond, toasted
    • heavy cream (to garnish, optional, but the best part)


    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a large skillet over high heat.
    2. 2
      Add the fig halves and sprinkle liberally with brown sugar.
    3. 3
      Saute, turning the figs gently, until warmed through, about 4 minutes. Be careful not to let the butter/brown sugar burn, just caramelize.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle with toasted almonds and garnish with heavy cream.

      This was not star rated because I didn't read the recipe title clearly. I don't like fresh figs. I used dried figs and what a delicious treat! I only used 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar and let the butter melt in the pan until it started to have a nutty scent. Served with real whipped cream and smoked salt almonds. I also added a small pinch of ground cardamom, too and warmed it up with the butter. Made for The Lands of Figs and Apricots' recipe tag game in NA*ME forum.

      I was looking for a fast dessert to use up some fresh figs before we left on vacation. I think this is best served warm, so cook the figs at the end of your meal preparation, then let cool while you eat your meal. I served this over greek yogurt--excellent!
