  • Add the fig halves and sprinkle liberally with brown sugar.

    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!

    I loved this desert! I did make a variation that tasted wonderful. I used the whole desert as a topping on the Fig and Almond Bundt Cake (by Rita). These two together make a wonderful Rich tast that is dreamy with a Cup O Columbian Java!
