Holy moly this was good! Needed to find a way to use the fresh figs I had picked at my best friend's house. The combination was wonderful. I didn't use the food processor to grind up the figs and pine nuts, just cause I didn't have one available to me...but I think that it gave it a great textural element. Next time I might toast the nuts prior to combining them with the figs. Thank you Laura for sharing this recipe; this was a great way to end our Italian feast.

Absolutely delicious. Next time, though, I'll cut the alcohol by a lot. It was way more than needed and I felt like I was just wasting good wine.

I used nectarines instead of peaches. I liked the baked nectarines in the alcohol, but not the topping. If I make it again, I will reduce the amount of nuts and add a little honey to the topping. Also, based on DILLORDONEZ's review, I cut the alcohol in half, and it was still too much, so I'd cut it down even more.

Really flavorful, but we topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (husband) and/or a spoonful of greek yogurt (me). Perfect. Next time I dont think I will process the pine nuts and figs in the food processor, though. Needs a little contrasting texture and crunch.
