We had friends visit a couple of weeks ago and while here, they made a fig and goat cheese with honey flatbread that was to die for. It got me onto a fig kick and right after they left, figs went on sale BOGO at my grocery store, so I got some. I made another flatbread, but then wanted to try something else as well.
This is where I confess that I have never in my life made a pie. The crust intimidates me. Hubby bought me some packaged, store brand pie crusts to experiment with and even those had me nervous. I always joke that I am a big nerd who has 4 pie plates in my cupboard and have NEVER USED THEM. Nerd.
So, I pulled two of them out one day since from the recipe I used, I thought I had enough ingredients. In hindsight, I should have just made one huge overflowing with figs pie. But instead I got two sort of skimpy pies. I liked this recipe because I didn’t have to do anything scary like put crust over the top of the pie.
My family claims they loved it. I thought it was pretty delicious for breakfast this morning. I want to try it again while the figs are still on sale and try one big pie maybe with honey instead of maple syrup.
Anyway…if you would like to whip up a super easy, delicious fig pie, this is how you do it! Only 4 ingredients!
1 pie crust (thawed if frozen) or be fancy and make your own.
20 fresh figs, top cut off, thinly sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Slice figs and place in crust. Sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar. Bake for 25 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup and bake for 5-10 minutes.
