After reading about the overly-orange comments, I skipped the oranges altogether and just used more figs. I also just used regular honey for the same reason. I plated it with the whipped cream in the center and figs around it, drizzled the amazing sauce over it all, and then sprinkled a few toasted chopped cashews across the top. It was elegant, light and scrumptious!
Used 4 small/med valencia oranges instead of 4 large navels. This created a much better balance between the figs and the oranges. Delicious.
This made a lovely dessert. Everyone enjoyed it, but I felt it was way more "orange-y" than "figgy." I would make this again, but increase the fig to orange ratio (the photo was deceptive).I used clover honey and Cointreau. It was an easy dessert to put together; I did everything in advance except the whipped cream. A sprinkling of orange zest made a pretty presentation.
I had high hopes for this since I was able to find some nice figs but this recipe just didn't do anything for me or anyone I made it for. The flavor was okay but, as the one star indicates, would definitely not make again.
