Baked Figs with Raspberries & Yogurt Cream

Makes: 4 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup light whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon eau-de-vie de framboise, or kirsch (optional)
  • 8 ripe fresh figs, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


  1. Line a small strainer with cheesecloth or a paper coffee filter and set it over a bowl. Spoon in yogurt and let it drain in the refrigerator until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 2 hours.
  2. Beat cream to soft peaks in a chilled mixing bowl. Add the drained yogurt, confectioners’ sugar and framboise (or kirsch), if using; fold in with a rubber spatula.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°F. Arrange figs in a shallow ovenproof baking dish in a single layer, cut-side up. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and lemon juice. Bake until the figs are heated through and the sugar has melted, about 15 minutes.
  4. Spoon the yogurt cream into 4 dessert dishes. Top with the warm figs and garnish with raspberries. Serve immediately.
