Cajun love making fig preserves – Great with bread, corn bread, or over cream cheese as an appetizer. Another sweet use for fig preserves is to make fig preserve muffins – so good
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup fig preserves (mash with a fork)
Cream butter and sugar
Add eggs and vanilla
Add flour, 1 cup at a time with baking soda
Mash figs with a fork and add to batter.
Bake at 350 in greased muffin pans for 25-30 mins. or until brown.
Makes 2 dozen. Cooks note - I sometimes make 1/2 of a recipe. I half the ingredients and use 2 eggs instead of three. They also freeze well if you have leftovers.
