Cooking Methods


Make Filling

  1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, sweetener, flour and orange zest. Stir to mix well.
  2. Add the figs and toss to coat. Set aside.

    Make Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 175C. Coat a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a small bowl, combine oil and sour cream and whisk until smooth. Add the oil mixture to the flour mixture and stir until stiff dough forms. Shape the dough into a disk and place between 2 sheets of waxed paper.

  3. Roll the dough to a 12-inch diameter circle. Remove the top layer of waxed paper and place the dough, with waxed paper facing up, into the prepared tart pan. Starting from the edge of the dough, gently remove the waxed paper. Trim the edges of the crust.

  4. Arrange the figs in the prepared crust. Place the tart pan on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until the edge of the crust is browned and the figs are soft. Cool on a wire rack. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
