  • 3/4 pound dried figs
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Optional: Whipped cream, grated orange zest and orange wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Prick holes in figs with a fork; place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, liqueur and cloves. Sprinkle sugar over figs; pour juice mixture over the top.
