Roasted Fresh Figs and Raspberries
Makes: Serves 4 to 6
  • 1½ tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into tiny cubes
  • 10 medium to large fresh Mission figs, stems removed, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 quart premium vanilla or honey ice cream, such as Haagen Dazs
  1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Scatter half of the butter in the bottom of a large roasting dish. Arrange the figs in a single layer, cut side up. Scatter the raspberries evenly over the figs and around the dish. Sprinkle the fruit with the sugar and dot with the remaining butter.
  2. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes or until the butter has melted, the sugar is glazed, and the fruit is tender. Serve immediately with scoops of ice cream, drizzling any pan juices over the fig dessert as well. Serve with shortbread, if desired.
