Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
Heat brown sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Add figs and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in almonds and vanilla. Place Brie in a baking dish, and pour fig mixture over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until softened but not melted. Serve with water crackers.
If you don't have fresh figs, soak dried figs in water till softened, then drain and cook as directed. Or you could even use fig jam in a real pinch; use about 200g jam and simply reduce the brown sugar by half or to taste.
