Orange zest, cinnamon and almonds lend these figgy treats a sophisticated flavor.

About 2 dozen sugarplums | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Combine figs, almonds, cocoa and cinnamon in a food processor; pulse just until the almonds and figs are the size of peppercorns. Add honey, orange zest and amaretto (or almond extract) and pulse 3 or 4 times more, just until mixed in.
  2. Spread the sugar in a pie plate or shallow dish. Form the fig mixture into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar.
