My mother was very proud of her fig tree. She boasted having the biggest figs ever..lol She used to make fig pies and although I loved them, I have never made one..I got this recipe for a JAP friend from my 90 year old aunt who is my mothers baby sister...I hope you guys enjoy it. It's been family tested for years, I just haven't ever made one.
Preheat the oven to 425. Prepare the pie pastry. Line the pie pan with the bottom crust, using half of the dough. Keep the remaining dough chilled. Combine the brown sugar and ginger. Stir in the figs, and lemon juice. Mix well. Turn the filling into the crust and dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll out top crust and arrange on top pricking holes in the top for steam to escape. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over the top crust. Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
