Baked Figs with Ricotta Walnut and Maple Syrup
1 sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
4 tbsp ricotta cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 fresh figs, cut into quarters but not all the way through
4 tbsp maple syrup
handful of walnuts
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a small bowl, mix together ricotta and vanilla. Set aside.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Cut four 3-inch squares from the sheet of puff pastry and place them onto the baking tray.
Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes, or until the pastry has risen and is pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool.
Spoon a tablespoon of the ricotta onto the pastry and place a fig on top.
Drizzle maple syrup and sprinkle some crushed walnut over the figs.
Bake in the oven for about 5 minutes.
To serve, drizzle the figs with more maple syrup.
