Children will love these fig bars that look and taste so much like the commercial product, only much better.

Ingredients

Fig Filling (recipe follows)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp EACH salt and baking soda

Directions

Prepare Fig Filling. Set aside.

Fig Filling:

Finely chop 1 pkg. (12 oz.) moist dried figs. Mix in saucepan with 1/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup water and 2 Tbs. lemon juice. Place over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until thick and jam-like. Remove from heat. Cool. Cover and chill.

With mixer, beat together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended.

Mix flour, salt and baking soda. Stir into first mixture (dough will be stiff). Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 3 to 4 hours or overnight.

When ready to bake, turn dough out on lightly floured surface. Roll into a 14-by-12-inch rectangle. Cut into 4 strips 3 1/2-by-12-inches long.

Spoon filling evenly down center of strips. With spatula, turn in sides of strips. Press edges together to seal. Cut each strip into 10 pieces. Arrange seam side down on baking sheets.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until firm and lightly browned. Remove to racks to cool. Store airtight.

By chilling dough overnight, you will need much less flour to roll it out since it is less likely to stick to the surface.
