Merry Christmas! Enjoy These Honey Fig Bars!

Merry Christmas to you all! Since most of you are probably spending the day with your family celebrating the holiday, I'm keeping this short and sweet today with these Honey Fig Bars, a Golden Blossom Honey recipe. And just because the holiday is about over with, it doesn't mean that you still can't make and enjoy these little treats this season. If you have any figs left over, this is a great way to use them up. They'll even be great for your New Year's Eve dessert!

I want to note that I did double the crust recipe. When smoothing the first half of the dough over the bottom of my pan, I had a few issues getting it to fully cover the pan, so I ended up using the full first batch of dough, then went on to make another batch to cover the top. The crust does puff up quite a bit while baking, so if you aren't into a lot of crust, this recipe is good as is. I am sure any holes left on the bottom of the pan will fill as the dough rises in the oven. I personally love crust, so doubling the recipe worked in my favor. I did use Silver Blossom Honey in this recipe because the orange notes compliment the sweetness of the figs deliciously. Regular Golden Blossom would be scrumptious too, just use what you have on hand and it will be yum either way!


6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups dried figs
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/4 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 egg yolk, beaten

You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.
