fig crumble bars

I got a bit of a nesting bug this weekend, and felt I just HAD to bake something. So I flipped to the back page of all my Everyday Food magazines until I found something from their "Cookie Jar" that sounded just right. I landed on Fig Crumble Bars. They looked simple, but not so simple that I wouldn't curb my craving to bake. Plus, I just love fig.

The recipe is available on Martha's site. I did use apple sauce and some water instead of apple juice, because I forgot to buy the juice. It worked fine. These are sweet, buttery, a little earthy and have a nice brightness from the lemon zest. They would be great with some hot tea. I bet I'd enjoy them more if I didn't have a toothache :(
