Drunken Stuffed Figs

Rated as 3.2 out of 5 Stars

"This has been a hit at many dinner parties. Figs are stuffed with a creamy, rich mascarpone cheese and cognac mixture, then rolled in toasted hazelnuts. Garnish with whole hazelnuts and mint leaves when serving. If an injector is unavailable, marinate the figs in 1/2 cup cognac for approximately 30 minutes."
