Honey Roasted Figs

If you're looking for an easy fruit dessert, try making Honey Roasted Figs. Inspired by the cooking of the southern Mediterranean, it's the perfect late summer dish when fresh figs are in season. Figs cooked this way are simply delicious. Eat them warm or cold, as a dessert or topped with yogurt for breakfast, either way, they are a real treat. Better yet you require no skills to make them, just a baking dish, some figs, a toaster oven, and honey. Yummy!

Bake on a high shelf for about 20-25 minutes or until the figs are slightly caramelized on top and soft, and a red syrup has formed in the bottom of the dish. Remove from the oven and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature with the syrup spooned over the figs. Add a dollop of creme fraiche or plain Greek yogurt if desired.

You can also cook the figs under the broiler. Make sure that they are on the lowest rung setting from the element so that they don't cook too fast and burn.
If you like, dot the tops of the figs with butter before adding the sugar. This will help caramelize them.
