I love figs. They are quite possibly my favorite fruit ever. Sadly, the local TX figs are not available yet. However, my local HEB grocery store had some California figs available, so of course I had to buy some!
There are so many things I love to do with figs, but this is one of my absolute favorites (and probably the easiest thing to do)! We made this for dessert last night, and it was truly fantastic, just like I remembered! I can’t wait for the rest of fig season (especially the local fig season)! 🙂
