|Ripe figs||4 (Wiped)|
|Sweet marsala wine||1⁄4 Pint (150 Milliliter)|
|Mascarpone cheese||4 Tablespoon|
|Ground almonds||2 Tablespoon|
|Mint sprigs||3 (To Decorate)|
Starting at the top of each fig and without cutting all the way through, slice each into quarters to open out the fruit.
Place the figs in a shallow dish and pour the Marsala wine over.
Cover and leave for about 1 hr.
Meanwhile, mix together the mascar-pone cheese and ground almonds, and leave to chill in the fridge until required.
Remove the figs from the Marsala wine and stand each fig in a serving dish.
Spoon some of the Marsala wine over fruit, then place some of the prepared cheese mixture in the centre.
Top with an almond and decorate with mint sprigs.
