This is not the sort of thing I usually make. Every once in awhile I get a wild notion to attempt something in an area I have no business delving into. I generally leave the dessert making to Faye. Unlike me, she has the patience to actually follow a recipe and produce delectable treats.
I haven’t had a lot of luck finding fresh figs this season so several weeks ago I dropped some dried figs into a jar of coconut rum to soak for some unknown future project. Last night I decided to wrap the figs individually in piecrust dough and bake them. I have never successfully made piecrust let alone whole wheat piecrust. Using whole wheat flour doesn’t do much to make it any healthier, I know. I just wanted to try it.
I used almost equal amounts of freshly ground almond meal and whole wheat flour, butter, coconut oil and salt.
I don’t even know what to call these little snacks but they were really good! The crust was crumbly and as good as any I’ve had.
