Chocolate-California Fig Pecan Bars

Makes 32 bars


2 cups all-purpose flour 

3/4 cup sugar, divided 

10 tablespoons butter or margarine 

1 package (8-ounce) Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs, chopped 

3/4 cup chopped pecans 

2/3 cup semisweet chocolate morsels 

3 large eggs 

3/4 cup light corn syrup 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract  


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir together flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Add butter, cut into small pieces. With pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (Mixture will be dry.)
  2. Press crust in bottom of lightly greased 13-x-9-inch baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Sprinkle figs, pecans and chocolate morsels over crust. Lightly beat eggs, gradually beat in remaining 1/2 cup sugar, corn syrup and vanilla until well blended. Pour over crust. Return to oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until filling is firm around edges and slightly soft at center. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars.
