Simple Fig & Mascarpone Dessert (Or Tapas)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by jenne

I overheard someone in a grocery store saying that figs and mascarpone cheese were made for one another, so I went home and whipped this up. That was 3 years ago and we have been enjoying it every summer when figs are available in the Midwestern grocery stores. It is sweet, creamy and savory too. Just something different to try!

Delish! Yes I still have figs even after the snow storm Saturday. I used Kefir cheese, honey so good. Thanks.
