Fresh Fig and Almond Crostata
A tender almond filling and a buttery crust, both quickly blended in the food processor, complement delectable figs. The crostata is especially good warm.
The prettiest fresh figs aren't always the tastiest. Perfectly ripe figs, which are plump and tender (but never mushy), are often slightly cracked, with a bit of "honey" forming at the stem. They're highly perishable, so use them right away, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
