  • Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece between parchment paper into 12x5-inch rectangles (if dough seems soft chill until easy to handle). Spread 1/4 cup of the fig mixture down the middle of each rectangle. Fold rectangles in halve lengthwise over filling and seal edges with the tines of a fork. Cut each rectangle crosswise into 12 slices. Place slices 2 inches apart on parchment on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
