Makes 8

 

Ingredients

 

8 large ripe figs

1 tsp. rum per fig

A dusting of ground cinnamon per fig

1 T mascarpone per fig

1 tsp. of brown sugar per fig

Unsweetened cocoa powder

 

Petal the figs by cutting them in quarters, not quite through, and pull the skin back from the flesh being careful not to break it. In the middle of each fig flower put 1 teaspoon rum, a dusting of cinnamon, then a tablespoon of mascarpone. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on top of the mascarpone and set under a very hot grill until the sugar melts. Dust with a little cocoa powder and serve at once.
