- Preheat oven to 200C. Grease a baking dish. Arrange halved figs in the dish. Drizzle with honey and rosewater then bake for 20 minutes or until they begin to colour and caramelise.
- Serve the figs sprinkled with pistachios, crumbled halva and softly whipped cream.
Buy your figs only 2-3 days before using. They are very perishable - look for plump, soft figs with firm stems that smell mildly sweet. If not using straight away, keep in the fridge.
