This recipe is a delicious, easy, and interesting way to serve up the fall superstar, the apple. Apples are partnered with fresh figs and roasted into a sweet compote that tastes and smells like a perfect fall day.
It's divine over a bowl of morning oatmeal, makes a wonderful warm fall dessert when served with a dollop of sour cream, or even a special after-school snack for some lucky kid.
Be sure to select the best apples for baking: on the softer, sweeter side is the Rome, all the way to the tart and firm Granny Smith. Personally, I seek out the Pink Lady variety — it's a good combo of the two, falling right in the middle in firmness and sweetness.
