Fig Dessert Cup Recipe

09.27.11 by Jackie

I've recently received feedback about PhamFatale, saying that some of the recipes I post seem too complicated and the instructions can sometimes be a bit intimidating. If that describes you, then you are going to love this recipe. It may look fancy and complex, but it’s actually very simple.

The basics of these cute little desserts are roasted figs in individual baked lavash bread cups. I filled the edible cups with store-bought instant pistachio pudding and sprinkled the top of the fruit with crushed pistachios to repeat the flavor from the filling. I prepared the receptacle for each dessert by molding rounds of lavash bread in the cavity of mini-tart pans. I separately roasted fresh figs from our garden that I drizzled with flavorful maple syrup. Doesn't that sound yummy?



It took me no time to complete this elegant-looking sweet treat. So next time you want to serve dessert, give this recipe a try. If you really want to impress your friends, call it "figues rôties à la pistache". French names make everything sound fancy!

Mulberry Dessert (Fruit Dessert Cup Recipe) Recipe

The summer weather in the San Francisco Bay Area has been pretty dreadful for the fruits and vegetables in our garden, with one major exception. We were able to pick a basketful of the ripest mulberries from the tree in our garden. We’re all happy to just graze from the tree every afternoon, but for fun today I made mulberry mousse. I piped it into edible cups made from lavash flat bread.

Just like beets, there's one downside to cooking with mulberries: this fruit stains. So make sure you wear dark-colored clothes and do not place them on a marble baking slab!
