    Member #610488's Note:

    A fluden, which comes from fladni or fladen, "flat cake" in German, is just that, a flat, double-or often multilayered flaky pastry filled with poppy seeds, apples and raisins, or cheese. It was originally common to southern Germany and Alsace-Lorraine, later spreading east to Hungary, Romania, and other Eastern European countries. Often flavored with honey, it was eaten in the fall at Rosh Hashanah or Sukkot and is symbolic, like strudel, of an abundant yield. Figs were often eaten in Germany as the new fruit on the second day of Rosh Hashanah.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    Dough

    Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the butter or margarine (or butter and vegetable shortening), flour, and salt in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until crumbly and gradually add the water, continuing to process until a ball is formed. Wrap the dough in waxed paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and add the tea bags, the lemon peel and juice, and the cinnamon sticks. Steep for 2 minutes and remove the tea bags. Place the figs in the water and poach for about 5 minutes. Drain the figs and the lemon peel, reserving the poaching liquid.
    3. 3
      Place the figs, the lemon peel, the sugar, the liqueur in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process but do not purée; you want the figs to have texture. Add a tablespoon or so of poaching liquid if the filling is too dry.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 400F and grease a 9-inch-square pan. Roll out half the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness. Put it in the bottom of the pan (it should not go up the sides), and trim off excess dough. Prick the dough with a fork. Spoon in the fig mixture.
    5. 5
      Roll out the second half of the dough and cover the fig mixture. Prick a few holes in the top and brush with the egg. Bake the fluden for about 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden. When done, cut the fluden into 16 squares.
    6. 6
      It is wonderful served warm, with whipped cream or ice cream or you can let it cool and eat it as you would a fig bar.
