It’s no secret that we’re head over heels in love with fresh figs.
As the tree is almost picked through, we just had to make something to use them up.
The other day we made a fig pizza on a homemade whole wheat crust.
It had goat cheese, balsamic caramelized red onions, and rosemary.
But more on that in another post…
Now I want to talk about last night’s dessert:
Individual Fresh Fig Pies
(Makes 4 individual pies)
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup wheat germ
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbs milk
- 1 Tbs black strap molasses
- 1 Tbs cane sugar (regular granulated will do)
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 10 (ish) fresh figs, sliced into thirds
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl, mix your dry ingredients for the crust (flour, wheat germ, salt, cinnamon). In small bowl, melt your butter. Add your milk, molasses, and sugar. Once mixed, add your egg. Add wet to dry, and mix until just combined. Split dough into fourths. Press out onto un-greased parchment paper on baking sheet. There should be 4 rectangular, but not perfect shapes. Fill each dough rectangle with a strip of fig slices right down the middle. Fold one end up, then the other, making a burrito like shape. Sprinkle the top with sugar. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Then broil for about 2 minutes, watching so they don’t burn.
^^That is not baked. It crisps up once baked then broiled. Yummyyy 🙂
