Maple Roasted Fig and Lemon Biscuits. ½ cup chilled buttermilk

Ingredients

Filling

·         175 grams pitted dates, roughly chopped

·         175 grams dried figs, roughly chopped

·         70 grams butter at room temperature

·         Zest and juice of 1 large lemon

Pastry

·         150 grams butter at room temperature

·         ½ cup caster sugar

·         1 egg

·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract

·         1¾ cups plain flour

Icing

·         2 cups icing sugar, sifted

·         ¼ cup milk

·         1 lemon

Recipe

1.    Put the dates, figs, butter, lemon zest and juice in a food processor and process to a smooth paste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2.    Dough: Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Fold in the flour to make a smooth dough.

3.    Turn out onto a large piece of plastic wrap and form into a disc. Wrap and refrigerate until firm. The dough will be very soft when first made.

4.    Preheat the oven to 180ºC.

5.    Cut the dough into three even pieces. Working with one piece at a time and keeping the remaining pastry refrigerated, roll out on a well-floured surface to a rectangle 40 cm x 10 cm. Put a third of the filling, in teaspoonful, along the centre of the pastry, leaving a border each side. Don’t flatten the filling. Brush the border lightly with water and fold one side of the dough over the filling, then roll the pastry towards you to form a log. If it breaks, gently press the pastry together. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.

6.    Cut into 9 cm pieces and carefully lift onto a lined baking tray. Cut 4 slits along the top and gently bend each roll into a slight curve. Refrigerate until firm.

7.    Bake for 20 minutes until a light golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack.Icing:Combine the icing sugar and milk in a bowl until smooth. You want a thick, but pouring consistency so adjust with more icing sugar or milk as needed. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the icing over the biscuits and using a fine grater, zest the lemon over the icing before it sets.

8.    Dust with icing sugar to serve.
