Clinton Kelly's Honey-Roasted Figs with Vanilla Ice Cream and Amaretti Cookies
Impress Your Guests With This Fall Dessert
An elegant dinner party dessert, honey roasted figs are a beautiful way to add a touch of fall to your menu.
Preheat the broiler to low.
Place the figs in a baking dish, skin-side down. Heat the honey in a small saucepan just until it begins to foam around the edges and add the orange juice and zest. Reduce over medium heat until the honey mixture coats the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. Set aside.
Brush a little bit of the honey mixture over each fig and top with a little of the sugar mixture. Place under the broiler until the sugar is caramelized and the figs are tender, turning the baking dish halfway through the cooking. This should take 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
To plate: place a scoop of ice cream in a bowl and top with 3 or 5 figs. Drizzle some of the remaining honey syrup over the top. Crush a couple of amaretti cookies with your hands and sprinkle over the top.
