Catholic Recipe: Fig Swirl
Tradition associates figs with St. Rita. As she lay dying, she asked a friend to bring her two figs from her garden. Although it was not the season for figs, her friend ran to the garden, and found two ripe figs on an otherwise barren tree. This ice cream dessert is as easy as it is delicious.
Cook fig cookies and light cream over low heat until well blended. Add chopped peanuts and peanut butter; cool. Fold into ice cream. Freeze until firm. Makes 4 servings.Recipe Source: Cook's Blessings, The by Demetria Taylor, Random House, New York, 1965
