Preheat the oven to 392 °F / 200 °C.
Wash the figs and pat them dry.
Cut the figs into quarters, but not all the way through.
Line the figs in a pan and open them like a flower.
In a small bowl, mix the honey and sugar together.
Add a teaspoon of the sugar mixture inside the center of each fig.
Pour the cognac/brandy over the figs.
Add the nutmeg and cinnamon sticks and bake for about 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes.
Serve with Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream, or on their own. Garnish with some walnuts, if desired.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
