Fig Bars



Tip: Select fresh figs at your local green grocer or open air food market. Wash and serve some raw with ice cream or fruit salad. Cook some to make Fig Bars.

Food for Thought: Notice the fig tree...When the leave come out...you know summer is near...same way...events ...mean... God is near. Luke 21:29-31 LB Recipe for Fig Bars: Combine 4 cups fresh figs with 2-/1/2 cups water and 3 Tapesppons of lemon juice. Add 1 cup honey and 1/2 cup molasses. Cook until mixture is thick. Make the pastry while figs are cooking. Cream 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup honey. 1/4 cup molasses, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring, 2-1/4 cups whole wheat flour, 1/4 teaspoon soda and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Make a pliable dough and roll or spread by hand 1/2 of dough into the bottom of a 9"x13" glass baking dish. Spread filling. Top with remaining pastry. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until top is brown. Sprinkle confection sugar over top and cool. Cut into 1" squares or bars and serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream. From Nutritionist: Figs are very high in Vitamins A and C, fiber and iron.
