As you can see in the title, this is post #250! 🙂 I have to thank all of my readers for sticking with me over the past two and a half years!
I am rather behind with my updates. Life is getting in the way. I told myself I’d never apologize for not posting or posting late, so I’m not going to. I was in Belgium all of this past week for two (related) academic conferences. It was a very stimulating but exhausting week, and has left me in a strange post-conference mix of fatigued inspiration combined with panic because I am of course now behind on my regular work.
Onto the subject of this post, which starts with a confession: I am an extremely new convert to fresh figs. Even a couple of months ago I would have probably shied away from them. However, I now think they’re great!
I was inspired to create this simple dessert after having a similar one made with cream cheese while visiting family earlier this fall in Derbyshire. Here’s what to do:
- Gently cut a X pattern into the top of the figs. Place them on a tray and roast for 10-12 minutes at roughly 200 degrees.
- Meanwhile prepare the yogurt/cheese mixture. Since there were just 2 of us (4 figs), I used about 1.5 tbsp Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp goat cheese, and a drop of honey. These measurements can of course be adjusted to personal preference.
- Once the figs are juicy, take them out of the oven and spoon the yogurt mixtures onto each one. Enjoy!
