Fig Yums

I just found a cookbook that my mother put together for our church when I was 9 or 10 that I had forgotten about! This book is full of recipes from all the old grannies that my mother grew up with, so you know they're good! These women were friends of my grandmother, so I knew many of them as well. Let me tell you, these women can COOK! So, I've decided to post some of the recipes that appeal to me and I think may be something you all would like to try as well.

This is the second. I don't have any fig recipes, and this sounds de-lish! Enjoy!

**This recipe comes from Ruth Evans, who has gone to be with Jesus, and was one of my grandmother's closest friends.**

How to Make Fig Yums

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine and blend first four ingredients thoroughly with your hands and press 1/2 of the mixture in the bottom of a well-greased 9x13 pan. Put figs into a food processor or blender until nearly smooth. Put figs into a saucepan with the sugar and lemon juice and cook slowly until thickened, stirring frequently. Spread over crust. Add nuts and coconut to remaining oat mixture and sprinkle over filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min., or until golden brown. Cut in squares and serve warm or cold, with or without whipped cream.
