    I would never make these bars again. They were dry and too much crumble for an 8 inch pan. My husband eats everything and he told me that he would not eat these again, so I threw them out and wasted all those ingredients. I never change a recipe until I first make it as written. There should have been some salt in the dough/crumble mixture. Very disappointed.

    I did not have figs so I used prunes instead-just as good. Next time I will try a dried berry mixture- lots of variations for this cookie.

      I don't particularly like figs & I was wondering about using prunes. I'm glad you use them. Was there anything you had to Chg to make the bars? Thanks.

    Calimyrna figs are gold in color. These were amazing, easy, and I had all the ingredients on hand.

    My Mom grew up on a fruit ranch in California and these were a staple of hers. The recipe was lost in an old beaten up cookbook. So thanks for the new recipe, I absolutely love them, they take me back to childhood.

    Are golden figs the same as Calimyrma figs? Having a hard time finding Calimyrma figs what other kind do you suggest?

    If you subscribe to Everyday Food Magazine, the nutritional info....calories, fiber, fat, etc. is in the back of each issue for all recipes! These fig bars are very good and easy to make....more of a gourmet fig bar than a store package fig bar.
