Baked figs are just simply delicious. You can make these in a
very short amount of time and will impress your holiday guests.
They are delicious when baked with balsamic vinegar and
topped with delicious mascarpone cheese. Here's what you
6 fresh, whole Turkish or Mission figs
1/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup mascarpone cheese
Handful mint leaves, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
While you wait for it to warm up, slice each fig in half
lengthwise and scoop out a tiny bit of the interior to make
room for the cheese.
Place figs cut-side-up in a small baking dish, and sprinkle
almonds around them. Drizzle vinegar over figs and nuts, saving a
little vinegar for garnish.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Place a dollop of mascarpone cheese in each fig.
Sprinkle with mint, drizzle with remaining vinegar.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
