It’s that perfect time of year, when the last few months of 2015 are underway, fall is in full swing and the line-up of monthly events brings friends & family to your door. Which brings us a fabulous excuse to throw a fabulous Halloween Dinner Party! Here is the perfect side dish when you host a most sumptuous meal for a warm & spooky night with close friends.
FIG-Ment of the Imagination - Makes 4 servings
1 cup mascarpone
1 tablespoon honey, plus extra to drizzle
8 figs, butterflied
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Place butterflied figs on baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes until sugar crystallizes.
2. Meanwhile, in a small glass bowl, whisk mascarpone with honey until consistently is light and whipped. Spoon approximately 1/4 cup onto a plate, smoothing the top of the mascarpone with the back of your spoon to create a small nest for figs. Repeat for remaining dessert plates.
3. Top each mound of mascarpone with figs. Drizzle with extra honey, if desired.
