Baked Figs with Ricotta Walnut and Maple Syrup

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.
