Fig Paste

Mrs. L. N. Hazen

One-half pound figs, one-half pound dates, one-half pound English walnuts. Put these ingredients through a meat chopper, mix with a little powdered sugar and roll out. Cut into squares and dip in powdered sugar. For afternoon teas or to serve with after dinner coffee.

[note: These are probably dried figs and dates since it is unlikely that Lawrence Kansas in 1906 had access to these ingredients fresh]
