Dessert Figs with Honey
- 12 plump ripe dessert figs
- 200g softened cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
- 6 tablespoons runny honey
- 1 cup Riesling
Wipe the figs, and carefully cut a cross in each at the top. This cross should extend about half way down each fig. Place the figs in a small baking dish. Into each fig, spoon about half a tablespoon of softened cream cheese. Drizzle over the honey, and scatter each fig with a few fennel seeds.
Pour the wine around the figs and bake I a preheated over at 170°C for about 10-115 minutes, until the figs soften and the cheese starts to become almost runny. Serve at once with the wine from the pan poured over each fig. Serve 2 figs per person to end a meal.
