This fig pizza pie with pink whipped coconut cream was created on a beautiful cold winter day. While one part of me would love to live in Hawaii or any other tropical place with beautiful beaches, sun, fun, and fruits I’ve never even heard of, another part of me loves all the seasons.
When November begins I start spending more time indoors, cooking by the stove, baking with my children. Winter is the season of sharing good food with loved ones while watching the dark days go by. It’s kind of a hibernation period for me, and my favorite place to hibernate is our kitchen.
Summer is the time for bright and colorful produce and I’m very inspired by all berries and fruits of the season. When autumn comes, I’m longing for darker tones and flavors. Figs and apples are a perfect match so I thought I’d combine these two to make a delicious dessert for the family.
My daughter was delighted to help me, although she is not a huge fan of figs. She had a piece of this fruit pizza pie with just the apple sauce. This pie would taste good with any fruits of the season!
I hope you enjoy winter baking as much as we do!
Lots of love from the forest ♥
This pie is dedicated to the cold and dark days of November.
