Story: My father in law, Michael Angelo Sansone, made this Sicilian Fig pastry when he was alive. We topped it off with Vanilla Ice Cream. He had Fig Trees in his Tennessee back yard and would preserve them. We used Figs when we made this pastry, but other fruits can be substituted. His mother made them for him. Was Sicilian tradition, also called homemade fig newtons.
