If you don't have a tree in your neighborhood or yard, then do what I did and go buy a quart at the North Carolina State Farmer's Market

  • 1 refrigerator pie crust
  • 1 quart fresh figs
  • 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 3 Tbs sugar

Spread the pie crust into a 9" pie pan. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, egg, vanilla, honey & zest from one lemon. When smooth, spread across the bottom of the crust. In another bowl, combine the figs (cut into quarters), the juice from the lemon, the sugar & flour and stir to moisten all ingredients. Pour on top of cheese mixture. Bake in a 425 degree oven until the pie crust is golden brown--maybe 45 minutes.
