Figs are in season! An underrated fruit, I feel the fig is. (That was sort of Yoda-like huh?) I created a delicious little fig “purse”, if you will, with only FIVE ingredients! So go to your local farmers market or grocery store and pick up some figs! This dessert is simple, easy, relatively healthy, and sure beats your run of the mill fig newton! Here’s the recipe…
Apx 12 large figs (mission or brown turkey but I prefer brown turkey it’s sweeter and more tender)
1 roll of store bought pie crust (you could make your own but seriously why?atleast not for this recipe)
Preheat oven to 400. Cut pie crust into small squares and sprinkle each square with a pinch of brown sugar and cinnamon. Place a fig on each square and wrap dough around securing it tightly around fig and leaving stem exposed. Place in baking dish/sheet and bake until golden brown, apx 10-12 minutes. Drizzle with a little honey and voila! I’m sure some vanilla ice cream on the side certainly wouldn’t hurt. Enjoy!
