Fig and Onion Spread
This is delicious spread on crackers or a sliced baguette with a smear of blue cheese. It can also be used as a topping for a wheel of warm brie. It's important to use a good quality aged balsamic vinegar in this recipe.
Real Fig Preserves
Figs are naturally sweet and very flavorful, however, the taste should not be bland. It's okay to spice it up a little.
Fig and Brie Crostini
Easy and impressive appetizer! Make the fig spread the night before to save yourself the prep time on the day of an event.
Vanilla Port Poached Figs with Honey Cream
Fresh figs poached in a rich reduction of port wine, spices, and orange zest. Served with honey-scented whipped 'sour' cream.
Thick, and that sticky texture of figs, turn this smoothie into a yum-yum smoothie for those who like figs a lot or want to rid their fridge of this perishable fruit fast.

Fig and Olive Tapenade
This is an easy gourmet appetizer. I've brought this to several parties and it is always a hit! I often add some chopped green olives to the olive mixture and a little more balsamic. Goat cheese may also be used in place of the cream cheese. Serve with slices of French bread or crackers.

Chicken Tenders with Balsamic-Fig Sauce
The balsamic vinegar is a nice contrast to the sweet figs which add great texture, and the thyme provides just a bit of savoriness to this sweet and rich sauce.
Italian Fig Cookies I
This recipe has been handed down through my mother's family for years. My grandmother brought it with her from Italy in the early 1900's. My mom taught me the recipe this year. Now I am the designated person in our family to make the Fig Cookies. This is a very high honor. So they must be as good as my Grandmothers' cookies. Some call them Homemade Fig Newtons. They are a tradition at Christmas and are wonderful with a hot cup of coffee. They are lot of work. I make them in stages. First the dough, then a few days later the figs, and finally I will make the cookies. The dough and the figs keep well in the refrigerator and the cookies freeze very well.
