Brie cheese smothered with fresh figs cooked with brown sugar, vanilla, and almonds, then baked until almost melted. Serve warm with water crackers as a wonderful holiday appetizer or special treat during fig season. Canned figs in syrup may be substituted for fresh by reducing the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and replacing the water with syrup.
Put the ooh-la-la into your French toast by using real brioche, the eggy, buttery bread from France. Unsweetened strawberry sauce helps cut the sweetness, and whipped cream amps up the richness. It's a special French toast for a special occasion.
I created this white chocolate masterpiece for my little sister, Abbey, who's a latte fanatic. She was blown away, and drained it to the last drop! This makes one VERY large, indulgent latte, and could probably serve two. Enjoy!
