      Made these tasty little buggers just to tantalize my vegetarian son & DIL, & they were more than just tantalized ~ Don't think my son had ever tasted a fig other than in a store-bought fig bar, & he really enjoyed them, as did we all! Now this recipe really is a keeper & I know we'll enjoy them again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
