  1. 5 tb Unsalted butter; room temp

  2. 2 tb Sour cream

  3. 2/3 c Dark brown sugar;

  4. 2 Eggs, room temp

  5. 1 ts Vanilla

  6. 2 c Flour

  7. 2 ts Baking powder

  8. 1/2 ts Baking soda

  9. 1/4 ts Ground cinnamon

  10. 1/2 ts Salt

  11. --FILLING-- 2 c Dried figs **

  12. 1 3/4 c Water

  13. 1/3 c Sugar

  14. 2 ts Grated lemon rind

  15. 1/4 ts Salt

  16. 2 hours. Cut the heavy stems off the figs. Combine the figs and water in a heavy saucepan and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the fruit is soft. Add the sugar, lemon rind and salt and simmer, covered for 15 minutes longer. Press the mixture through a coarse disc of a food mill, then cool. Preheat the oven to

  17. 5x11 inches. Spread

  18. 1/3 of the fig filling slightly to one side of center, along the length of the dough, covering an area roughly

  19. 2 inches wide and 10 inches long and leaving a 1/2-inch pastry margin on the three sides of the filling away from the center. Mound the filling slightly in the center along its whole length, then moisten the exposed margin with water. Very gently, lift the uncovered pastry with a spatula and fold it over the filling. Press the upper pastry against the lower to seal it. Trim the edges and shape the roll into a neat, half-cylinder form about 11 inches long and 2 to 2-1/2 inches wide. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the filling operation with the remaining

  20. 2/3rds of the dough and filling, then bake the three rolls for 25 minutes or until they are slightly browned. Cool the rolls somewhat on a rack, then trim off the ends and, with a sharp serrated knife, cut each one into slices about 1-1/2 inches wide. Replace the slices on the rack. When the fig bars are completely cool, store them airtight.
