Fig and Ricotta Canapes

This is a gorgeous fall dish to start a dinner party.  The homemade ricotta really makes the dish.  If that’s just not in the cards, then I would substitute mascarpone.

  • 1 french baguette, sliced thinly
  • 1 C. fresh ricotta click here for the recipe
  • 5 or 6 fresh figs, any variety, cut into quarters
  • 1/4 C. honey
  • 1 t. coarse sea salt (I used Himalayan Pink ’cause that’s how I roll)

Lay out the bread slices on a cutting board and spread about 2 T. of ricotta on each slice.  Top each slice with one fig quarter.  Drizzle the honey over the figs, and sprinkle each with a small pinch of salt.
