  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Trim about ½ inch off the top of each fig. If needed, cut a thin slice off the bottom so they stand up straight. Cut an X into the tops about ¾ inch deep. Gently open each fig from the top without breaking it open all the way.
  2. Combine mascarpone, 2 teaspoons honey and vanilla in a small bowl. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the mixture into each fig. Drizzle with the remaining 1 teaspoon honey and sprinkle with almonds, mint and orange zest.
