These Honey Roasted Figs make a simple yet delicious dessert, especially when paired with mascarpone or Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream. The fresh figs are baked in the oven with butter, honey, cinnamon, pistachio, and a little lemon zest. They are tender, yielding and wonderfully fragrant. The perfect recipe for using up this season's fresh figs! And a wonderful summer dessert to serve to your friends and family.
NYT Cooking: Figs are baked into an almond batter for this rustic cake to have with coffee or tea. With figs, ripeness is everything. A ripe fig (the object of your desire) is soft, yielding, beginning to crack, nearly wrinkled. When you cut into it, the flesh is bright and juicy and the taste is ethereal.
