Double-Nut Stuffed Figs
Double-nut stuffed figs are a classic Mediterranean dessert. They are made by stuffing a whole fig with a combination of nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, and pistachios. The figs are then baked until they are softened and the nuts are lightly browned. The double-nut stuffed figs can be served as a dessert, snack, or accompaniment to a cheese platter. They are also a great addition to any holiday spread.
