Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
For the Dough

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour soaked overnight in 1 cup of homemade or plain yogurt.

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons butter

Preparation

  • For the Filling:
    Peel the apricots. Bring a pot of water to a full rolling boil. Place the apricots in the boiling water for 30 - 40 seconds. If your apricots are ripe their peel should slide right off.
  • Once the peel has been removed, remove the pit and dice the apricots. In a small pan, heat the apricots and 2 tablespoons of honey. Heat through until the apricots break down. About 5 minutes. In a food processor blend the figs, apricots, juice of 1/2 of an orange and 1 tablespoon honey.
  • Dough:
    The next day after soaking, stir in the maple syrup, butter and orange zest. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
