DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly grease a baking sheet.Pre-heat oven to 175C/350F/Gas Mark 5.
  • Put the figs in a saucepan with 300 ml (1/2 pint) water. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the figs are tender and the liquid is well reduced. Set aside to cool, then puree in a blender or food processor.
  • Put the remaining ingredients for the pastry in a blender or food processor with 30 ml (2 tbsp) water and mix to a dough.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface, then roll out to an oblong about 40 x 12 cm (16 x 5 inches).
  • Spread the fig puree down the centre of the dough rectangle and carefully fold in the sides so that they overlap over the filling.
  • Trim the ends of the roll and cut into 3 cm (1 1/4 inch) wide slices. Turn the rolls over and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Mark the top of each roll with a wet fork and bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a rack.
