I love fruit desserts. They're a light and refreshing end to a nice meal. This one is no exception, and uses necarines or peaches and figs. A perfect summertime treat!

Directions

  1. Tear bay leaves and break cinnamon into 3 or 4 pieces. Split vanilla pod in half and scrape out seeds with bakc of a knife. Mix with the star anise seeds and pepper, orange zest and juice, honey, and sugar to make a sauce. Can be chilled up to 24 hours ahead.
  2. Half an hour before serving, preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius Cut peaches or nectarines in half and remove the stones. Halve the figs. Place peaches or nectarines skin-side down in a large baking dish. Pour over sauce and dot with butter. Roast in preheated oven 10 minutes, then add the figs and baste with sauce. Roast another 15 minutes, basting a few more times until fruits are tender.
  3. Serve with creame fraiche or ice cream, and amaretti biscuits, if desired.
