I like them with a glass of ice cold milk.

JP,
I adore figs..One of my favorite things..I like to cut them in half and top each half with a dab of mascarpone and then drizzle with lavender honey..So good..They are also lovely wrapped in prosciutto...

Darn Tootin'. I love Fig Newtons! Figs dipped in chocolate, stuffed w bleu cheese and almonds, bruschetta with caramelized onions and prosciutto. Funny you should mention figs. I was looking through last year's BHG, and here are a few that appeal to me. The fig and pistachio cake looks to die for.

I love figs! I chop dried figs and put them in my steel cut oats. Not often though as they are loaded with calories.

My mom used to put Fig Newtons in my lunch all the time, yummy!

Gotta be a "rain on your parade" person. Can't stand anything "fig." I think they taste like sticky, gooey sand. There's something about the texture of Fig Newtons that makes me want to chuck my cookies...Fig Newtons, for sure. I want to like them, but haven't been able to get THERE.

Buck likes them, so I've had the opportunity to taste them many times. Just haven't gotten there yet. Maybe someday.
