Hold the Newtons

While Fig Newtons were my first introduction to figs and I still really enjoy them, I’ve come to love fresh figs. Late summer sees a whole new crop of figs, which are wonderful eaten out of the hand or dressed up a little. In this simple dessert we served fresh figs with sweetened creme fraiche and roasted almonds. Give the Newtons a rest and give fresh figs a try–they are sure to please.
