Ingredients

Directions

Stem the figs and cut in 1/2. Place fig halves in a large pot or saute pan. Add wine, cognac, brown sugar, lemon peel and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes, or until liquids have reduced by 1/2. Let cool, then serve with a dollop of mascarpone cheese. Drizzle with liquid reduction. Top with lemon zest and a dusting of icing sugar.
