Honey-Baked Figs with Ice Cream
Use purplish-black Mission figs, green-skinned Calimyrnas, or both for this great-tasting dessert. Give the figs a gentle squeeze to check for ripeness; they should be quite soft.

12 figs, fresh
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
4 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons butter, cold, cut into 12 pieces
2 tablespoons water
1 pint vanilla ice cream




Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the stems off the figs. Rub the oil over the figs and put them in a baking pan, stem-side up. Cut a cross in the top of each fig, cutting almost to the bottom.

Drizzle the honey over the figs. Top each one with a piece of the butter. Bake the figs until they open up like flowers, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven.

Put the figs on plates, add the water to the pan, return the pan to the oven for 1 minute, and then stir to make a sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the warm figs and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.


Variation: Sprinkle one-half cup chopped walnuts or pistachios over the figs after the first seven minutes of cooking.

Top the granita with a hefty portion of whipped cream; you’ll need the mild sweetness of the cream to balance the strong espresso.
