How to make it

  • Combine all filling ingredients in a small saucepot and bring up to a simmer.
  • Simmer until the figs absorb all liquid, about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool and purée in a food processor before chilling completely.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • Cut in shortening until dough is a coarse mealy texture.
  • Add whole egg and egg yolk and blend in until dough comes together.
  • Shape into a disc, wrap and chill for an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a rectangle, just under ¼-inch thick.
  • Using a knife or pastry cutter, cut strips of dough that are about 5 inches wide.
  • Spoon filling along center of each strip. Don't over-fill!
  • Brush one side of pastry dough with egg wash and fold the other side of pastry over filling, so that egg washed side meets it.
  • Trim edges.
  • Lift filled cookie tube to a greased or lined baking sheet and press down to flatten slightly.
  • Repeat with remaining strips.
  • Brush tops with egg wash.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until a light golden brown.
  • Cool cookies on sheets before cuting the bars strips into bites.

    Note: you may need to play with the amounts of ingredients here, I found I had way too much filling and the pastry crust was very very sticky. Next time I'm using shortening (and less of it) and more flour.
