Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Wash and dry the figs carefully.
Cut the stems off and cut an X shape in the top.
Place the figs in an oven-proof baking dish and drizzle them with 2 Tbs of olive oil. I used California Olive Ranch Arbequina variety which has a great fruity bite, perfect for figs, and or ice cream.
Pop the figs into the oven to roast for 20 minutes. Meanwhile mix together the sugar...
..2 cups of whipping cream...
...and 1 cup of milk.
Stir the mixture together well and place the pot on the stove at a low heat.
When the milk /cream mixture starts to steam but not boil, take the pan of the heat and add in 5 oz of fresh goat cheese.
Stir the goat cheese in until it's melted and blended.
Pour the mixture into a container and set it aside.
Take the roasted figs out of the oven. Let them cool a bit them put them into a blender or food processor to puree.
Stir the pureed fig mixture into the ice cream blend.
Put the fig goat cheese ice cream blend into the fridge to chill for a few hours. You want it cold before putting it into a the fridge.
Another alternative it to set the bowl into an ice water bath to give it a flash chill.
In a few hours when the ice cream mixture has chilled down, stir it up again as the cheese will have congealed a bit, and put it into your ice cream machine.
Let it churn for about 25 minutes. Bingo, ice cream! This is a very rich creamy dessert, figgy with a mild goat cheese . The combo of goat cheese and olive oil roasted figs satisfy any dessert craving
