- Slowly whisk in remaining hot syrup and beat for 10 minutes.
- Combine cream and sour cream and stir until smooth.
- When fig puree is cool combine creams, yolks, and puree with vanilla extract and refirgerate until well chilled.
- Churn in an icecream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- To serve cut a cross in the top 2/3 of each fig and push them to open up into a pretty flower like shape (see picture). Divide figs between plates and place a large scoop of icecream beside them. Top with toasted pistachios. Enjoy!
