Heavenly! I was happy to see Agave Nectar and not syrup. That makes all the difference to a Diabetic. I am looking forward to trying Bourbon Whipped Cream!! Thanks reviewer - Ceege

I made this for a dinner party and used it as my dessert. I whipped fresh whipping cream, adding about 1 to 2 TBLS sugar and about a TBLS of bourbon to the cream. Served a dollop of cream with the figs and it was inhaled by all. Received wonderful compliments. Thank you for great recipe.

These are a must-try for your next party. They also make a great dessert for a dinner party. Serve with hot French roast coffee with a drop of brandy in it for a perfect finale.
