Fig and Cream Cheese Bars

    The fig filling on its own, and the crust on its own, both taste wonderful. But the combination of the two with the cream cheese mixture did not taste good together.

    I recommend using 8 ounces of cream cheese instead of 6. Crust is delicious!

    I followed directions except I didn't have enough of the cream cheese. These were still very lovely. I will make them again, but I wouldn't just use 3/4 c. of cream cheese. I'd use a full 8 oz.

    These are wonderful! I had to stash them in the back of the fridge before my husband ate the whole pan. I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 glass dish with no trouble. Made as written except that I did everything in the food processor--mixed the crust, pureed the figs, and whipped up the cream cheese/egg/sugar/vanilla mixture. Basically one dish plus measuring cups! Cooked the figs and set the cream cheese on the counter, then took a long bike ride. Came back and both were perfect temperature. Good recipe to do with a child as he/she could pulse the food processor and pat in the figs filling and topping. Powdered sugar not really needed.

    These taste delicious. I didn't think the crust, filling, and topping were enough to fill a 13x9 in pan, as written, so I used a 9x9 in pan instead, and they came out fine (and looking like the ones pictured).

    These are amazing, but I'm confused where the lemon juice comes in. It's in the ingredient list, but the directions never mention to add it.

    These were yummy, and I will make them again. The crust was a bit salty - I would use less salt next time. The picture is misleading as your layers would be much thinner with a 9X13 pan. I used an 8X8 and they look like the picture. Was thinking of using chocolate ganache in place of the dates next time.
