Do you have an opinion on figs? Before about a month ago, my whole experience with them was in a Fig Newton. That’s it. I really love Fig Newtons though, so at least it was a positive opinion. Right? About a month ago I received two containers of figs in my Bountiful Basket. I was pretty happy that the containers were labeled, because otherwise I would have had to put a picture on the internet and asked what they were. There is a picture below, in case you are like in this aspect. I took the figs out and was trying to figure out how you eat them and if they have to be cooked first. Again, no clue at all. I decided that I would ask on Facebook because people always have great ideas there. I received a few comments that said to just wash them and eat them, so I had a few that way. My husband wasn’t a fan though and I was pretty sure I couldn’t eat all of those figs on my own. So, I decided I would run them through my Ninja and freeze them until I figured out what I wanted to do with them. I knew I didn’t want them to go bad. I finally had an idea and these Strawberry Fig Popovers were born. I’m sure happy my husband doesn’t eat cooked fruit because these are really great. The ingredients are super simple and except for the figs, you probably have them in your house. I used my Wilton Rectangle Pocket Pie Mold to make these popovers, so that made it so easy. I was excited to try it out because I hadn’t used it before. It’s fun. You should get one. I hope you love these as much as I do. You can control the amount of sure by reducing the amount of frosting you use. They are tasty. Please stop over and visit us at Fearlessly Creative Mammas and follow us on social media too. We’d love to see you there.
