Oven Roasted Figs with Ricotta and Honey
1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) fresh figs
50 g (1. oz) unsalted butter
250 g (9 oz) fresh ricotta
pistachios or crushed walnuts
Prepare the figs by trimming the stems and cutting a cross into the figs but not all the way across the bottom. In a baking dish, melt the butter and place the figs cut side up. Roast for about 10–15 minutes.
Remove from the tray and place onto a platter. Place a heaped tablespoon of ricotta into the top of the figs where you have cut. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with some cinnamon and pistachios or crushed walnuts, whichever you prefer.
