Tetilla is a mild and creamy Spanish cheese that gets its name from its breast-like appearance (tetilla means breasts). I use it in this recipe because melted Tetilla is one of the most satisfying flavours, and because we all need a treat from time to time. Don’t forget, food feels your soul!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 figs
1 cinnamon stick
200g tetilla cheese, (or any soft cow's milk cheese)
100g soft brown sugar
25ml sweet sherry wine
a knob butter
bread sticks, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Slice the figs in half and place them in a roasting tray with the cinnamon stick. Break the cheese into pieces and spread it over the figs. Sprinkle with the sugar and the sweet sherry wine. Finish with a knob of butter and bake for 15–20 minutes.
  3. Have some bread sticks to hand and enjoy this simple but very serious treat.

Note

  • For a really pretty dish, cut a cross in the top of each fig and open them out like flowers before cooking.
