btw Elias, I think it'd be lovely with a little condensed milk instead of honey.

This amazing dessert literally takes 10 mins, and it looks and tastes fantastic! I've been making it every few days now that figs are in season and so cheap!

Made this last night. I am generally not a lover of desserts, but this one was sooooo good, not too sweet. Will make it again.

Haven't tried this recipe yet, but will do if I can find a substitute for the honey. I'm allergic to any sort of honey. Any substitution ideas?

used a ton of honey and cinnamon and had them without nuts or yogurt - they were still amazing!
