The instruction how to make Fig rolls

  1. Place figs, prunes, dates and water in the bowl of a food processor and process until mixture forms a paste. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Stir in caster sugar. Use your fingertips to rub in butter and cream cheese until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add egg and vanilla essence. Mix with a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion until mixture just comes together.
  3. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth. Roll to a 25 x 30cm rectangle. Transfer to a tray. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove dough from lined tray and place on a lightly floured surface. Reserve baking tray. Spread fig mixture evenly over dough. Starting from a long side, roll up dough firmly. Trim untidy ends and return log to reserved lined tray. Place in the fridge for further 20 minutes to chill.
  5. Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Cut log into 2cm-thick slices. Place raw sugar in a bowl. Brush outside edge of each slice with a little extra water then roll in raw sugar to coat. Place on lined baking trays about 3cm apart. Bake in preheated oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
