Perhaps the worst recipe I've ever tried! There were several missing ingredients, including egg(s) to make the dough hold together. The instructions were so unclear that if you've never made a jam/preserve type filling such as this as I hadn't, you may end up with burnt filling and a ruined pot (I actually had to throw my pot away) as I kept cooking the filling expecting it to magically turn into a jam-like thing, not knowing that I would need to puree it after cooking. They were rather flavorless; not even my husband, who will eat almost anything, liked them, let alone my kids who love store-bough fig bars (they wouldn't even touch them). The dough was rather difficult to make work in the pan as well, it kept cracking and didn't seem to want to cover the entire surface. I was frustrated to have wasted all my ingredients (figs aren't cheap) and wanted to review to warn others. I'm trying another recipe today and I am certain it will end up better if for no other reason than the instructions are complete and has more flavor adding ingredients.
