I had purchased a pint of figs at the farmers market not too long ago and was thinking of what to do with them. My thoughts went to dessert and I ended up with these easy caramelized figs. All you need is butter and brown sugar; it can't get any easier. I spooned the warm caramelized figs over some frozen vanilla greek yogurt (from Trader Joe's) and it was amazingly delicious!

Slice figs in half lengthwise with stems removed.
Add figs, cut side down, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until caramelized. Spoon sauce over figs.
You may serve the caramelized figs warm or at room temperature.
