    Omg Nazneen – I see a lot of recipes but I must admit that it’s not that often that I see something that makes me feel like “I have to make this now!”. This is one of those things. Looks and sounds incredibly good! I’ve pinned it, and will share it on my Facebook page too because this is something I want to make, and soon! Next weekend I think – thanks so much for sharing!

    Hi Nazneen,
    The tart looks gorgeous! Love that it is a no bake. Figs are one of my favorite fruit and I can only imagine how yum this must be.

      Thank you Asmita! It turned really well, and I was happy with the result. Definitely helped being no bake!

    I am always looking for quick and easy recipes such as your dish here. But I don’t think is going to be easy for me…

    This is absolutely amazing. I eat figs just like any other fruits but never used them in a dessert. Love the fact that this is no bake.

      Thanks Balvinder! It makes it pretty easy being no bake!

  5. What a gorgeous tart and beautiful photos! I’ve had difficulty finding fresh figs here, our are always overripe and “squishy”. If I find some I’ll be back to try this.. with the sauce:)

    Nazeen this is such a gorgeous tart! I am so glad that costco inspired you. Beautiful topping and photos that leave me drooling. My boys have started school and the lunch requests are pouring in too. Lets touch base later regarding some fun ideas that are portable into school. I need some inspiration. Take Care, BAM

      Thanks Bam. School lunches are so hard, they start off inspired and. Interesting but end up as pb sandwiches and some fruit!

    All my favourite things in one recipe! Those caramelised figs are glistening with deliciousness on the white cheesecake tart. Love this recipe and the pictures are fabulous too.

      Thanks Sonali! It came out quite delicious I think! I love figs too and who doesn’t love cheesecake and toffee sauce?!

    That’s a gorgeous dessert. We have a fig tart recipe from the LA Times that’s wonderful, but very complex and decadent. This looks way simpler and just as delicious.

    Figs pair with cheesecake so well. This looks totally gorgeous! I love the look of the caramelized figs. Terrific dish – thanks so much.

    This tart looks absolutely decadent with those caramelised figs and toffee sauce, Nazneen. Making a full-sized cheesecake would have been too much, I think. Making a tart though, with a ginger snap crust is just right. The fact that it’s no-bake makes it all the better. This is a great recipe and thanks for sharing it with us.

      I would’ve loved to have made this in individual tarts, John but I don’t have false bottom little tart pans. It would be hard to remove a crumbly tart from a solid pan. I agree with the whole cheesecake idea and that’s why I went a tart route. Less cheese and not so rich. Thanks John!

    Great looking tart Nazneen, I often buy figs and bake them but never really get much further than that. This looks like the perfect way to use the figs that are just starting to appear in the shops again. School doesn’t start for another two and a half weeks and university until October so it’s still full on chez Glam. GG

      Thanks GG. I usually don’t even bake them! Pop em straight in my mouth! They are so good when they are fresh and in season, so sweet. This time, I decided to do something with them. It turned out quite well!

    This is a beautiful fig tart, Nazneen. I love how the base is made with ginger biscuits. This would go so well with the figs. It looks very pretty xx

      Thank you Charlie! The ginger snaps did go well quite well, but they were strong ( might just be the kind I bought) if you don’t like the ginger flavour then it would be a problem. I personally love ginger snaps.

    Would you believe what drew me to read this post was “figs”? It just so happens I bought a basket two days ago! I would never have thought to add them to a cheesecake. These photos, have not only made me drool, but also inspired me to try my hand at this delicious concoction! :)

    Sounds divine, and figs are my favourite! A quick question, I live in Australia, could I substitute castor sugar for the powdered sugar?

      Hi Andrea! Thanks for commenting! Caster sugar should be no problem or if you have icing sugar or confectioners sugar, it’s so difficult to keep up with all the different terms! I used icon sugar KT because its really fine and dissolves easily into the cream cheese. But caster sugar is fine enough and it should work just fine! Thanks Andrea!
