1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake brie in an oven safe dish for 18-20 minutes.
2. In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter until it just starts to foam and turns slightly golden brown.
3. Carefully lay your figs cut side down in the butter. Season with a pinch of salt and cook over medium heat for 5-8 minutes without moving. The figs should start to soften and you should start to see some of their seeds and juices coming out.
4. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the figs and stir. Using your spoon, smash the figs a little while they cook in the brown sugar and butter. Cook for another 3 minutes, then add in the black pepper and Saba. Season with a nice pinch of salt and turn off the heat. Add honey and stir to combine.
5. Once the brie is ready, cut the rind off, spoon the fig mixture overtop, and finish with a small squeeze of lemon juice (about 1 tsp.) and some Maldon sea salt.
6. Serve with crackers or toasted baguette and enjoy!
