  • 1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup honey

How to Make It

  1. Cut each fig into 4 wedges, cutting to, but not through, base of fig. Spread wedges slightly apart; place 3 figs on each of 5 dessert plates. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese into each fig, and spoon about 1 tablespoon honey evenly around each serving of figs. Sprinkle each serving of figs with about 1 tablespoon walnuts.

  2. Note: Dried figs may be substituted for fresh figs.
