In terms of complexity, this is dessert is pretty simple, really. But when has this blog been about making things that are difficult? Never!
Did you ever take Sewing at school? Do they even teach that anymore? Well, I remember back in my day, when we had to make a 4-gore skirt, or a pair of trousers (in gabardine!) or a t-shirt (in stretch fabric!), and we would spend hours poring over the pattern books at the local fabric store (do they even have pattern books anymore?). I would always make sure that the pattern I chose had ‘Easy/Facile’ printed on it because there was no way I could handle anything that wasn’t Facile.
My rudimentary sewing skills meant that my patterns were always from Butterick or Simplicity – no fancy schmancy Vogue patterns for me, no siree! Of course, there was no guarantee that I wouldn’t sew my own finger to the trousers I was attempting to stitch together, but there was definitely less risk with a Butterick pattern. No matter that everything I made had to be taken apart and sewn back together again (properly) by my mother, who was a trained dressmaker – what a disappointment I turned out to be to her...
Anyway, here is a très facile fig dessert that would also be perfect for breakfast, just substitute the biscotti for granola or muesli. Hope you give it a go and enjoy (which is more than can be said for my gabardine trousers).
2 slices biscotti, roughly crushed
3 tblsp Greek yoghurt
3 tblsp honey
1 or 2 ripe figs, sliced
1. Place some of the crushed biscotti in the bottom of a glass.
2. Top with a spoonful of yoghurt
3. Drizzle some honey on the yoghurt
4. Top with a couple of slices of fig
5. Repeat the tiers, finishing with a layer of fig.
Fresh figs - they do not ripen once picked, so get good ones to start with.
A couple of pretty layers, and it's done.
