ricotta stuffed figs

what you need
8 medium figs (480g)
¼ cup (25g) roasted walnuts chopped coarsely
½ cup (120g) ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1/3 cup (80ml) cream
30g butter
1/3 cup (75g) firmly packed brown sugar

what to do
Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C.
Cut figs, from the top, into quarters, being careful not to cut all the way through; open slightly. Place on oven tray.Combine nuts, cheese and sugar in small bowl; divide nut mixture among figs. Cook, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until figs are heated through.Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in small saucepan; stir over heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer, uncovered, 3 minutes
Place two figs in each serving dish; drizzle with caramel sauce.

Or for something a little more savoury mis fresh herbs in with the ricotta wrap in parma ham and bake for 10 minutes
