Fresh figs star in this lovely dessert, paired with a lemony creme filling — like custard in texture, but slightly more tangy and scented with vanilla. The tart crust is a throw-together affair and requires no baking. Altogether, a very simple dessert, that you're sure to love.
Roasted Fig Tarts with Meringue
These delicate fig tarts are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat. The grilled meringue topping adds a special touch, plus they’re equally good enjoyed warm or cold. Be sure to serve with some silky Greek yoghurt.
