Baked Figs with Almond Creme


Baked Figs

This recipe is simple, but packs a lot of good fresh flavor.


  • 12 large ripe figs
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Place cleaned and dried figs side by side in a deep baking dish and place in an oven heated to 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
  2. While the figs bake, make the almond creme and caramel. Prepare the almond creme by placing the almond milk, blanched almonds, and vanilla extract  in a blender and combining until smooth.  Taste and season with granulated sugar if necessary.
  3. Place the brown sugar, salt, and water in a broad skillet and melt over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Continue string until the caramel comes to a boil then remove from heat.
  4. When the figs are finished baking, plate the desert by carefully slicing the figs, scooping a spoonful of almond creme on top, and drizzle with caramel.
