Even people who say they normally don’t care for figs would enjoy this. The glazed fruit covers a smooth, luxurious filling of honey-sweetened cream cheese accented with lemon.

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • GLAZED FIGS:
  • 1 pound dried figs (preferably Mission figs), stemmed and halved
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:
  • Sliced almonds, toasted
  • Cnfectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Place almonds in a food processor; cover and pulse until ground. Add flour; pulse to combine. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in egg yolks. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients for glazed figs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until figs are tender. Uncover; cook an additional 5-10 minutes or until figs are glazed and 3 tablespoons liquid remains. Remove from the heat; cool completely.
  4. For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, honey and lemon peel until smooth; spread over crust. Arrange figs over filling; drizzle with remaining liquid. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, sprinkle with almonds and confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
