Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound dried figs (quartered)
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (each, and packed brown sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place first three ingredients in a bowl; toss. Refrigerate overnight. Drain, reserving 1/4 juice. Transfer figs and reserved juice to a small food processor; cover and process until a thick paste forms. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, molasses and vanilla. Combine the remaining ingredients except fig mixture. Gradually add to creamed mixture; mix well. Divide dough into four portions; cover and refrigerate.
  4. Between two sheets of waxed paper, roll each portion into a 9 inch x 4 inch rectangle. Transfer two rectangles to a parchment paper lined baking sheet; remove waved paper. Spread reserved fig mixture evenly over both rectangles to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top with remaining dough; remove waxed paper. Using a fork, crimp edges to seal.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wine rack. Cool completely. Cut each in half lengthwise; cut width-wise into slices. Store in an airtight container.
