Fresh figs with almond cream

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
100 grams Ricotta cheese
75 grams Reduced fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons Skimmed milk
25 grams Almonds; finely chopped
18 \N Ripe figs
2 teaspoons Finely-chopped fresh mint
\N \N Honey

Mix the ricotta, cream cheese and milk together. Push the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl. Add the nuts. Form the mixture into a ball and wrap in a dampened tea towel. Chill in the refrigerator.

Slice the stems off the figs and make two cuts in each from top two bottom, stopping just before the base of the fig. Press each fig at the base, which will make it open up. Spoon some cheese mixture into each fig, and serve sprinkled with mint and drizzled with a little honey.
