The first thing I must say is that before (finally) making this recipe we ate 2 boxes of figs (small) and now just did it, I don't blame anyone.
I have loved figs since I was a little girl and used to go to my uncle Miguel's house (my grandmother's brother) in the summer.
He has a really big fig tree and were delicious.
If I find figs again I will make another recipe.
This is a wonderful tart with almonds and a filling of ricotta and Greek yogurt with honey and figs.
I hope everyone is ok(of course everything worries me) I just hope that it improves. I pray and wait.
A hug to all and thanks by coming!
