How to Make It

Step 1

Cut a slit in large side of 24 dried figs, cutting to, but not through, stem end. Stir together 1 (3-oz.) package softened cream cheese, 2 tsp. powdered sugar, and 2 tsp. orange liqueur; fill each fig evenly with cream cheese mixture and 1 roasted, salted almond. Press figs to secure filling.

Step 2

*You can make this recipe ahead of time and store the figs in the refrigerator. Before serving, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

These are delicious! I mistakenly use goat cheese the first time I made these and always use goat cheese now. This also works well with freak figs but I suggest you cut them completely in half or the cheese will slide out.

I made these for a bridal shower and everyone loved them! I've had people ask for the recipe even months later.

I made these for one of the appetizers at our annual Christmas Eve dinner - they were delicious! You can also stuff with a mild goat cheese and a salted almond for a more savory version.
