      Title: Fig and orange linzer torte
 Categories: Live
      Yield: 4 Servings
      2 c  Dried figs
    1/2 c  Orange juice
    1/4 c  Honey
    1/4 ts Cinnamon
           Walnut Linzer Dough:
  1 1/2 c  Flour
  1 1/2 c  Walnut pieces, finely ground
    2/3 c  Sugar
    1/2 ts Cinnamon
    1/2 ts Nutmeg
    1/2 ts Cloves
      1 ts Baking powder
  1 1/2    Sticks butter
      1    Egg
      1    Egg yolk
      1 ts Grated orange zest
           Confectioners' sugar
  Lightly butter a 10 by 2-inch deep layer pan.
  For the filling, stem and dice the figs and combine with remaining
  ingredients in a nonreactive saucepan.  Bring to a simmer and cook
  over low heat, stirring occasionally, until figs are soft and mixture
  is thickened. Stir often as the filling thickens to avoid scorching.
  Cool and puree in the food processor. Set a rack in the middle level
  of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. For the dough, combine dry
  ingredients in a mixing bowl. Rub in butter evenly, making sure
  mixture does not become pasty. Whisk egg, yolk and orange zest and
  stir in, continuing to stir until a soft dough forms.  Spread 2/3 the
  Linzer dough in the bottom of the prepared pan. Evenly spread the
  filling on the dough, keeping it about 1/2-inch from the edge.  Place
  the remaining dough in a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain
  tube. Pipe 4 lines of the dough, spaced equidistant from each other,
  over the filling. Pipe 4 more lines diagonal to the first ones. With
  the remaining dough, pipe a series of small spheres around the edge.
  Bake the Linzer Torte for 45 minutes, until the center is firm when
  gently pressed with a fingertip.  Cool in the pan on a rack.  Unmold
  and dust lightly with confectioners' sugar immediately before serving.
  Yield: 10 servings
