Figs with Anthotiro
Figs and cheese are a great combination. The figs have an intense sweetness to them which contrasts very well with the anthotiro cheese, which is light but has a creamy and tangy flavour.
- 500 gr of anthotiro cheese
- 50 gr of sugar
- 50 gr of honey
- 2 eggs
- 125 ml cream
- 500 gr fresh figs cut into 4 vertically
- 50 ml cognac or brandy
- 1 tsp of fresh mint, finely chopped
Preheat oven at 160-170° C
Mix the anthotiro cheese with the sugar, the honey and the eggs.
Add the cream and the finely chopped mint.
Empty the mixture into a long, narrow cake tin and insert the figs into the surface, upright.
Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes.
As soon as the sweet is removed from the oven, sprinkle the cognac over it.
It is best served warm.
