  4. Remove them from the pan and add the butter and reduce the wine down to about 1/2 cup. The figs should not be too sweet and usually dont need extra sugar. The butter will make the sauce glisten and will give the sauce a warm buttery taste.They can be served hot or at room temperature. When you are ready to serve, place 2-3 figs in a glass or decorative dish and dribble the wine sauce over them. Or scoop some cinnamon or vanilla ice cream in a bowl and add the figs with dribbles of the wine sauce.
