  • 1 200g tub mascarpone

  2. Preheat the oven to 200C.

  3. Spoon around a dessertspoonful of honey into each open fig, along with some of the comb if using.

  4. Dot the mascarpone over the top of the figs and sprinkle with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Serve these figs with some high quality vanilla ice cream. This recipe serves six people.
