Dough:
½ cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda

Filling:
1 (12-ounce) packages dried figs
½ cup sugar
¾ cup water
2 tablespoons lemon juice

To prepare filling, place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and combine. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 10 minutes – until thick. Remove from heat. Cover and chill.

For dough, beat together margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and baking soda and combine well. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 4 hours or overnight. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough into an approximately 14 x 12-inch rectangle. Cut into 4 (3-1/2-inch) wide strips. Spoon filling evenly down center of strips. Fold over sides and press edges to seal. Cut each strip into 10 pieces and arrange, seam-side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
