The Fantastic Fig for a Snack or Dessert
Surprise your family and friends with these tasty morsels of deliciousness and healthy ingredients! Just need 10 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees and voila, you have a decadent dessert. This is my first taste of a fresh fig and I'm now a huge fan!
6 fresh figs (they should be soft to the touch)
1/4 cup ground fresh walnuts
1tsp. ground cardamom ( if you don't have this, can be made without and still be very tasty)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp date syrup
Wash the figs and trim the rough ends from figs
grind the walnuts and cardamom together so they are finely ground
pour 1 tsp. lemon juice in small bowl with date syrup and add to the walnut mixture
Slice the figs with an X 3/4 down the fig so that you create space in the middle of the fig
Put small amount of nut mixture into center of each fig
Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
