Homemade Figs Preserve Rustic Braid

The naturally sweet and very flavourful figs from my parents and in-laws farms and the month of september are the perfect combination for a fully productive weekend of making a  huge batch of homemade figs preserves for the winter months to come. This year this was not an exception {you can find the recipe here}and the combination of flaky puff pastry with this succulent figs preserve with generous figs halves soon became an almost instant and super tasty treat to have around. The masterstroke was a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream that just took this delish into another whole level of decadence!

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • homemade figs preserve
  • eggwash
  • light brown sugar to sprinkle on top


  1. A ideia que me acabaste de dar! Ontem ofereceram-me doce de figos! E com a massa folhada parece-me perfeito! Beijinhos

  2. The dough looks so yummy!
