    Baked marsala figs with pine nuts and mascarpone

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    40g pine nuts
    20g salted butter, diced
    12 figs, halved
    100ml marsala
    1 lemon, zest
    50g light brown soft sugar
    200g mascarpone

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Put the pine nuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 5-6 minutes, until golden. Remove and allow to cool.

    2. Meanwhile, dot the butter across the base of a medium-sized baking tray or casserole dish. Put the figs in the dish, cut-side up, drizzle over the marsala, then scatter over the lemon zest and sugar. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until soft and sticky. Remove and leave to cool a little. Serve the figs and marsala sauce with generous dollops of mascarpone and the pine nuts scattered over.
