- Grease a small (15 x 8 cm) loaf tin and line with plastic wrap. Grease again and set aside. Drain the figs, but reserve the syrup. Slice the figs into thin slices and set aside. Roughly chop the nuts and set aside.
- Arrange a layer of slices figs on the base of the tin. Spread a thin layer of Simonsberg Creamy Blue Cream Cheese over the figs, using the back of a spoon. (Warm the spoon in boiling water if necessary.)
- Sprinkle a thin layer of nuts over the cheese and arrange a layer of figs over the nuts and then spread over another thin layer of cream cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with a layer of cream cheese. Wrap tightly and weigh down. Refrigerate overnight.
- To serve, remove the wrapping, turn out onto a platter and remove the tin. Peel off the plastic and drizzle with a little of the fig syrup. Serve with sparkling wine and water biscuits or crostini.
