4 large purple or green figs -- halved lengthwise
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter -- in very small pieces
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 sprigs mint -- for garnish

Preparation / Directions:

Heat broiler. Place figs, cut side up, on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the sugar over the figs and dot with butter. Place figs under the broiler as close to the flame as possible and cook until they begin to brown around the edges, about 2 minutes. Place 2 fig halves on each plate, along with a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon honey over each scoop of ice cream and sprinkle figs with pepper, if desired. Garnish with mint sprigs.
