Fig Squares



Ooohhh I was soo excited and was looking forward to our long weekend for one whole month
Infact I had made a long list of To-do/to-go/to-meet/to-eat/to-make items
And now ….it’s gone!! Leaving every little thing in my wish list undone!!!
Why you ask..?
For me the weekend started 3 days early…coz of 3 days of medical leave and a stupid stupid eye infection
And it ate almost whole of my long weekend..grrrrrrr
Can it be any worse than this?
Now I have to wait for two whole months for the next long weekendL


Anyways it’s time to clear out the list from my drafts folder…
So here is a fudgy, chewy and healthy slice…This was made some 3 weeks back and was lazily sitting in my drafts folder !!

1/3  cup Skimmed milk

  25. Woah, the texture looks so appealing. I would love to make these! I wonder if subbing dates, dried apricots, or another dried fruit for the figs would work.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Yatee Thank you:-)
    Sure you could substitute with dates or apricots, but you will have to reduce the amount of water. As you see the figs I used are super dry and so i had to use 1 cup water.
