Good flavor- tastes like Fig Newtons. I used Calimyrna figs, but if I make it again, I'll try Mission figs (smaller seeds) and process them into much smaller pieces after cooking in the Marsala and cooling. I used the Cook's Illustrated "Foolproof Pie Dough", which is amazingly tender and shortbread-like (a bit of a splurge, but it was for a holiday dinner).
