How To Make Amaretti-Stuffed Figs with Raspberry Sauce
Enjoy a sweet and tangy treat with these amaretti-stuffed figs. They’re grilled until tender, then topped with sweet mascarpone.
In a food processor, puree the raspberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Strain the raspberry sauce through a fine sieve.
In a small bowl, blend the mascarpone with the remaining 1½ teaspoons of sugar and vanilla.
In another small bowl, combine the amaretti cookies with the butter and 1½ teaspoons of balsamic vinegar.
Set the figs on a work surface, stemmed side up. Using a paring knife, quarter them vertically, keeping 1 inch of the bottoms intact.
Open the figs slightly and lightly sprinkle them with sugar.
Spoon the amaretti cookie crumbs into the figs and press them lightly to close.
Spread 6 corn husks on a work surface and set a fig, stemmed side up, 2 inches from the base of each husk.
Top each fig with a second husk to enclose it completely. Tie the corn husks together tightly at each end with kitchen string
Light a grill or preheat a grill pan
Grill the figs over a low fire, turning them every 2 minutes for about 8 minutes total, until they are tender and the filling is bubbling.
Transfer the corn husks to plates and untie the packages. Discard the husks.
Open the figs slightly and top each with a rounded teaspoon of the sweetened mascarpone.
Lightly drizzle the figs with the raspberry sauce and balsamic vinegar and serve.
Make-Ahead: The raspberry sauce, sweetened mascarpone, and stuffed figs can be refrigerated overnight.
