Heavenly Figs

We have two very productive fig trees in our backyard, and towards the end of August, this is my favorite appetizer and/or dessert.

Ingredients:
4 ripe figs
Greek yogurt or mascarpone cheese
Honey
Salted nuts, any variety, chopped

Directions:

  1. Slice off stems from figs, and then halve them.  Then slice a little off the rounded side so that the halves will stay flat on your tray.
  2. Place a small dollop of yogurt or cheese on each half – about 1/2 teaspoon, depending on the size of your figs.
  3. Drizzle each with honey.
  4. Sprinkle with nuts.
  5. Serve at room temperature.

Notes:
This recipe also works well with ripe apricots.  For the nuts, chopped pecans are my favorite, but pistachios, almonds, and cashews are also wonderful.
