Honey-Baked Figs with Ice Cream

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

Use purplish-black Mission figs, green-skinned Calimyrnas, or both for this great-tasting dessert. Give the figs a gentle squeeze to check for ripeness; they should be quite soft.

Slideshow: Fig Recipes

  1. 12 fresh figs
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  3. 4 teaspoons honey
  4. 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 12 pieces
  5. 2 tablespoons water
  6. 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  1. Heat the oven to 425°. Cut the stems off the figs. Rub the oil over the figs and put them in a baking pan, stem-side up. Cut a cross in the top of each fig, cutting almost to the bottom.
  2. Drizzle the honey over the figs. Top each one with a piece of the butter. Bake the figs until they open up like flowers, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven.
  3. Put the figs on plates, add the water to the pan, return the pan to the oven for 1 minute, and then stir to make a sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the warm figs and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
Notes Variations Sprinkle one-half cup chopped walnuts or pistachios over the figs after the first seven minutes of cooking.
