A colleague of mine who once in a while shares her gardens produce had given me again another fruit and this time it was figs. When I went back home, I was thinking it was quite a challenge as I don’t use this fruit a lot in my cooking but I remembered I tried baked cheese before where figs was involved so this is what I am going to do. Basically this recipe is really simple to make and good to serve on cocktail parties, melting cheese, nutty almonds and sweet figs isn’t that a good combination? Well up to you to find out.
125g round Brie
2 pcs figs, quartered
1/4 cup toasted almonds, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4. Serve with your favourite crackers.
