Makes about 30 bites
Time 2 hr 25 min
Figs and almonds are classic Greek companions, frequently used in candies and baked goods. These bite-size treats are perfect for picnics and dessert tables.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted and divided
  • 1 cup dried figs, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates

Method

Place almonds in a food processor and finely grind; remove and set aside. 

To the food processor, add figs, dates, vanilla, cinnamon and orange zest. 

Pulse until dried fruit breaks down and mixture is sticky. 

Add 2 tablespoons of the ground almonds and pulse until incorporated. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

Use a teaspoon to scoop out bite-sized portions of the paste. 

Roll the mixture into small log shapes, then roll the logs in remaining ground almonds.
