Creamy Fig Pudding
If I had to pick a favorite dessert from this book, this would be it: a rich, milky pudding infused with butterscotchy dried figs. It may also be the easiest dessert you’ll ever make. Just soak, drain, and chop the figs, add them to warm milk, and let the pudding set. That’s it. Use the plumpest dried figs you can find. All the better if your figs are organic or naturally dried, without sulfites or other preservatives. Stick with yellow or green figs; Black Mission figs will produce a gray pudding. For a richer, thicker pudding, use all cream or substitute half-and-half for the milk. The pudding must cool and set for at least 6 hours; the longer, the better. I prefer to divide it among individual serving bowls or cups, but you can make it in one large bowl. — Robyn Eckhardt, author of Istanbul & Beyond

Roasted Apple Compote with Figs
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. See all fig recipes.

As soon as I saw their robust, plump, and purple bodies at the farmer's market stand, I knew I had to take them home. I'm not much of a baker, but when it comes to figs, there's little else I'd rather do with them then create something sweet. I took a fairly easy route, which I think you'll agree with, and the results were phenomenal.  Click here to see 8 Fantastic Fig Recipes.

I love green olives and figs, so I put this together with the chicken to have a salty-sweet combination. I found the green olive tapenade at my grocery store and the fig preserves at a specialty store. — Carol Hull, Hermiston, Ore.

Cranberry-Fig Chutney
Spiked with ginger, cardamom, and a touch of chile pepper, this cranberry chutney is a bold and exotic take on the classic cranberry sauce. Dried figs and a dash of cointreau add to the chutney’s lusciousness. If you don’t have cointreau, grand marnier or kirsch are good substitutes.
