Costco had fresh figs at a reasonable price, so I bought a flat, never having prepared figs before. I thought for sure that someone on the web would have a recipe idea for a salsa. Came across this one, and tried it on my husband for breakfast. I used the fresh figs, didn't have blanched or enough almonds, so I threw the almonds I had, plus some pecans into the food processor, and added generic chocolate chips. For the orange liqueur, I defaulted to Grand Marnier, though I'll go for the Cointreau next time. Popped them in the toaster oven, and as I'm writing this, my husband is stuffing himself two more...Brilliant idea, fast, elegant. An outstanding selection for someone hosting a dinner party who doesn't want to leave her guests to prepare a complex dessert, but wants to serve one.
