Sir Isaacs Fig Bars (points help Question)

Recommended Posts

Could someone run this through the mastercook for me? I am curious about the points... smile.gif






Sir Isaacs Fig Bars



11 large dried figs, cut in half - 8 1/4 ounces

1 tsp grated fresh orange peel

1/2 cup apple juice



1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup + 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup sugar

3 tbsp + 1 tsp. margarine

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. water




Preheat oven to 350~.

Lightly oil or spray with a nonstick cooking spray a baking sheet.

TO PREPARE FILLING: Combine all filling ingredients in a blender

container. Blend until figs are in the form of a thick puree.

TO PREPARE DOUGH: Combine both types of flour in a large bowl -

along with baking powder, and sugar and mix well. Add margarine. With

a fork or pastry blender - mix until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add water - stirring until ingredients are moistened. Now - with

your hands - form dough into a ball, adding additional water, 1/2

tsp. at a time, if necessary, until dough holds together.

Place dough on a lightly floured surface, knead a few times and then

shape into a log. Roll it into a 12 x 14 inch rectangle. Cut

rectangle lengthwise into 3 long strips.

TO ASSEMBLE: Divide filling evenly between the strips and spoon

down the center of each strip. Fold dough lengthwise and seal edges

by crimping with a fork. Place rolls on prepared baking sheet.

Flatten slightly with your hands. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until

bottoms are lightly browned.

Remove to wire rack to cool, and when cool, trim the ends and,

using a sharp knife, cut each log into 10 bars - each 1 1/4 inch wide.



Makes 10 servings of 3 cookies each serving.

TracyD, thank you so much for posting this recipe. I made these once years and years ago and then lost the recipe. They are wonderful!


Thanks again!
