Fig Spread and Mascarpone Crostini

This appetizer is delicious and extremely easy to make. Black Mission figs have a deep, rich flavor and pair perfectly with the soft, creamy texture of mascarpone. Best of all, it can be made ahead of time and assembled just before serving. Anything left over is wonderful on toast!

Try this with our Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Prosciutto and Kalamata Olive Spread and Parmesan Crostini.

Fig Spread Ingredients

  • 9 to 10 ounces dried figs, stems removed
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until the figs are tender. Remove from heat and let it cool. Put the mixture in a blender and puree until smooth.

To Make the Crostini


Position the oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Arrange baguette slices on a baking sheet and lightly brush one side with olive oil, if desired. Bake until lightly toasted, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

To assemble the appetizer, spread the crostini with mascarpone and then top with a layer of the fig spread.
