Roasted Figs with Honey & Fresh Ricotta

It’s not often that you find a recipe combining all your favorite ingredients, but when I stumbled across this gem from Food Network, I knew I was in love. Figs, honey, cheese, and butter, all in the same dish? Yes, please! My salivary glands are getting a workout just thinking about it.  


6-8 Mission figs

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 tablespoons honey
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch kosher salt

Serve with: 1 cup fresh ricotta (click here for our recipe)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Put the figs, cut side up, in a baking dish. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat, and whisk in the honey, cinnamon and salt. Drizzle the hot honey butter over the figs and roast in oven until very soft, 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Divide the fresh ricotta among 4 serving dishes and top with the warm figs and sauce. Enjoy!
