Smile TNT Stuffed Figs

I love figs I can eat all this by myself Use 8 small black figs reg green will do as well. Preheat oven to broil. Cut a cross at the top of the fig about 3/4 of the way down.. Mash together 2 tab. of butter.2 tab. sugar,and 1/4 cup of ground pistachios, other nuts will work but I love the stachios divide this mix into as many balls as you have figs and poke the ball into the mouth of each fig broil 8-10 min or til nut mixture is golden and fig is hot. Serve wit either creme fraiche or whipped cream I also like some mascarpone.
enjoy

I just couldn't resist commenting on the title of this thread (which is perfectly fine, of course). Since TNT is also the term for dynamite, it just made me laugh! Dynamite stuffed figs!

Not a big fig lover, but it has been awhile since I have tried them, so who knows, maybe I'll try this sometime.

Leave it to you to make me grin. And I needed it today. Seems our neighbors were robbed yesterday. Country living wha hoooo Thank heavens for an alarm system. There have been so many home invasions lately DH is paranoid so setting the alarm is a nightly ritual for us. So thank you for giving me something to grin about.

Good Afternoon Kades,

Figs ... I use fresh figs and fill them with a little goat cheese and pistachios ... and drizzle a bit of honey ... This is lovely ...

Kades: Do you use fresh figs ? Here, they are in season in August. They have a gorgeous strawberry interior fruit with a deep violet exterior ...

Have lovely wkend.
Margi.
