- 6 Tbs. mascarpone cheese
- 1 Tbs. sweet Marsala wine
- 1 1/2 tsp. plus 1 Tbs. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 6 slices coarse country bread, each 5 by 3 inches
- Unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 6 ripe figs, sliced
In a small bowl, stir together the mascarpone, Marsala and the 1 1/2 tsp. sugar. In another small bowl, stir together the 1 Tbs. sugar and the cinnamon.
Place the bread slices on a small baking sheet. Broil until nicely toasted on the top. Remove the bread from the broiler and turn the slices over. Spread each slice with butter, then sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. of the cinnamon sugar, dividing it evenly. Return to the broiler and broil until beginning to brown.
Remove from the broiler. Spread about 1 Tbs. of the mascarpone mixture over each toast. Top with the fig slices, arrange on a platter and serve immediately.
