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 need:

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!
