I have found the most delicious and the easiest homemade fig bar recipe.. This recipe puts the store bought fig bars to shame and you will never want to eat those cardboard bars again...

I've tweaked this recipe a bit to make it my own... Hope you enjoy...

NOTE: I double this recipe and place into a 9 x 11 pan..
