TIM Mly MM UM. KM***. Montvw, WirtmM^, Am ·, It* ^^^ , ' . i TM "»T "·"· *·"·· ·%··»·". IWMIHIIB, marmaff, Mat 9, IWft ft ) Fig treats the warm-weather snacker With warm weather, comes the notorious junk-food snacker. The best way to stop or help with this problem is to have quick nutritional snacks ready for those morntag, afternoon or evening sueki. Whole wheat fig bars have many nutritional elements but this isn't what makes those of all ages reach for them as a regular treat. Homemade fig bars are relatively simple to make although the dough is delicate to handle. The secret is to chill the dough and add the filling quickly to get the cookies into the oven without mishap. Keep the cookie board we!l-floured while rolling out the dough and again work quickly. If desired, grind figs for filling, but chopping works just as well. HOMEMADE FIG BARS 1 cup shortening */i cup granulated sugar '/z cup brown sugar 2 egg yolks 3 tablespoons milk or buttermilk 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 2 teaspoons cream of tartar 1 teaspoon soda Vz teaspoon salt 1 recipe fig filling (see below) Beat shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, milk and vanilla, beating well. Sift together dry ingredients and add toegg mixture. Chill dough 1 hour or longer. Divide dough in half, keep second half refrigerated until ready to roll. Roll dough out on heavily floured board to about 'A inch thickness. Using a ruler as a guide, cut into strips about 4 inches long and 144 inches wide. Place about 1 teaspoon cooled filling in center of each strip and lap sides over or roll up. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart, seam side down. Bake in moderate 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until bottom of fig bars start to brown. Makes about 3 dozen fig bars. clublicity Edgerton P.T.A. Members of the Edgerton P.T.A. recently had their last meeting of the year at the school gymnasium with Faye Eklund installing new officers.
