11 large dried figs, cut in half (8-1/4 oz.)
1 tsp. grated fresh orange peel
1/2 C. apple juice
1 C. all purpose flour
3/4 C. plus 2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 C. sugar
3 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. margarine
1/2 C. plus 2 Tbsp. water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil or spray with a nonstick cooking spray a baking sheet. Filling: Combine all filling ingredients in a blender container. Blend until figs are in the form of a thick puree. Dough: Combine both types of flour in a large bowl along with baking powder, and sugar, and mix well. Add margarine. With a fork or pastry blender, mix until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, stirring until ingredients are moistened. Now with both hands, form dough into a ball, adding additional water, 1/2 tsp. at a time, if necessary, until dough holds together. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead a few times; then shape into a log. Roll it into a 12 by 14 inch rectangle. Cut rectangle lengthwise into 3 long strips. To Assemble: Divide filling evenly between the strips, and spoon down the center of each strip. Fold dough lengthwise and seal edges by crimping with a fork. Place rolls on prepared baking sheet. Flatten slightly with hands. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool, and when cool, trim the ends. Using a sharp knife, cut each log into 10 bars, each 1-1/4 inches wide.
