Pan de Higo (Fig Bread)

800 grams of dried figs
150 grams of ground almonds
50 grams of peeled almonds, raw
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
zest of 1 orange
1 splash of dry anise or rum
icing sugar

We take the figs, we remove the tail, chop and put to soak for 30 minutes. After this time, drain well and with a sharp knife chop them very finely.

Put in a bowl, add the ground almonds, sugar, anise, cinnamon, and orange zest. Mix well and put in the fridge 1 hour.

After this time we do 4 round cakes, put in two of them the peeled almonds as in the picture. Cover with the other two and flatten well, place them on icing sugar. We spread well on both sides.

Wrap in plastic wrap and put on top some weight, so we left 48 hours, and we can eat.

You can use it on salad with balsamic vinegar. It taste just great.
