Every August I get a little Fig Crazy! If you are obsessed with figs {like me} you know what I’m talkin’ about. I go to my farmer’s market very early every Saturday to buy several pounds of fresh figs. And those only last about two days. I devour them without an ounce of self restraint. In fact, I have to buy double my usual amount if I want to create a recipe.

So now you know that I make myself sick off of figs every year. Another fun fact about me is that amaretto and vanilla are a couple of my favorite flavors. I brought together the ultimate trio to make this Vanilla Amaretto Soaked Figs Recipe!

And. . . it’s just bonus points that this jar looks like something you could find in Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. I love creepy looking food!

I enjoy these Amaretto Soaked Figs over plain whole milk yogurt for a snack or dessert. But they are fantastic over vanilla ice cream too.

Don’t forget to spoon out some of the sweet, amaretto syrup with your figs. Or, you know, drink it. Don’t judge me.

All you need are fresh figs, amaretto, sugar and a vanilla bean. Perfection.

This recipe was inspired by Clinton Kelly’s Wine Soaked Peaches.
