Ms. Faulk’s Sweet Dough Tarts



  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Canned figs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Handful of flour and sugar for the dough

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Cream the butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar.

Step 3

Mix the remaining dry ingredients.

Step 4

Add the wet and dry ingredients together. Chill the dough. The dough is easier to roll and shape if you refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Roll the dough in a mixture of sugar, flour and nutmeg. Cut in squares, fill with smashed canned figs, fold over and seal with fork.

Step 6

Bake at 350 degrees until light brown. Do not overcook. Store in airtight bags or container. Can be frozen after baking.
