Ingredients

Crust

1 3/4 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into pieces

Filling

1 (7-ounce) package (about 1 1/4 cups) dried Mission figs, stems removed

1 cup ruby port wine or orange juice

1 tablespoon sugar

Drizzle

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 to 3 teaspoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all crust ingredients except butter in bowl; cut in 3/4 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 3/4 cup mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 10 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Place figs in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; process until finely chopped. Place chopped figs and port in 1-quart saucepan; cook over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 3-5 minutes or until figs are softened. Stir in sugar. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until syrup is slightly thickened.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread fig mixture over hot, partially baked crust to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking 15-20 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon butter and vanilla in bowl. Beat at low speed, gradually adding enough half & half until desired glazing consistency. Drizzle over cooled bars.
