    I felt like a Queen eating this. I buttered the baking dish placed the just washed figs, so I didn`t add any more water. Sprinkled with sugar which carmelized wonderfully. The walnuts and figs were meant to go together!I topped the hot figs with ice cream then topped with lavender honey recipe #63539.

    My family enjoyed them with no extra toppings. I liked the fact that the figs were not overly sweet. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

    I thought this was only OK. DH thought it was awesome, though, which is why I went up to 3 stars. It was very easy to make. I didn't use whipped cream but the second time I did try it with lemon.

    Wow! Not what I expected but this took figs to a whole new level! This was one of the recipes I tried when I bought a container of fresh figs. Don't know why I bought them, my only fig experience is with Newtons. But now I'm much more a fig-officianato! Served this on vanilla ice cream and it was divine!

    This is a very good desert and with vanilla ice cream or the creme fraiche I'm sure it would be a show stopper! I made it just as is, without any of the optional extras, and loved it. So easy and perfect for a dinner party.
