Sweets with fresh figs, delicious biscuits filled with a sweet autumn compote, a simple and delicious recipe to greet the arrival of September!

Since the temperatures are slightly lowering, we can find the courage to turn on the oven (don’t worry, half an hour will be enough)

For the shortcrust pastry
330 g flour type “0” Bio pastry core for shortcrust pastry and biscuits
100 g granulated sugar
60 ml sunflower oil
2 eggs
1 vanillin sachet
1 teaspoon of baking powder

For the fig filling
6-7 large figs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
6 ladyfingers
Dry biscuits type Oro Saiwa

Prepare the dough by putting all the ingredients together in a bowl and forming a nice firm and homogeneous ball. There is no need for resting times, as oil was used instead of butter.
Peel and chop the figs and cook them in a non-stick pan with the sugar, until compote.
Pulverize the biscuits with the mixer and put them in the fig compote.
With a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a rectangular shape, roll out a long strip of fig mixture to form a cylinder, closing underneath, as is done with strudel.
Cut the sweets so that they measure about 5 cm, place them on the dripping pan, lined with cartaforno.
Bake the cookies at 180 degrees for 15 minutes in a preheated oven, until golden brown.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool, sprinkle with icing sugar (to taste) and serve.

An excellent variant is also the addition of sliced ​​almonds, both on the surface and inside the compote. Almonds, like figs, are also a typical fruit of the month of September.

Beneficial properties of the fig: this small late summer fruit contains a lot of water and precious minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and iron. Additionally, fresh figs are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, PP and C.

The micòoula is a typical Christmas bread from Hône, a village in the Aosta Valley and is the ideal recipe to make with our Ryecorn blend (type “1” wheat flour, rye flour and toasted corn germ).

Since 2008, a local association, the Amis della Micòoula, has decided to enhance this black bread with an unmistakable taste, which in the local dialect means “a little bit special bread”.

The aim of the members of the association is to rediscover the local tradition, to recover the fields and rural buildings – such as the mills, the ovens, the dryers – to re-evaluate the villages, the return of young people to their origins and above all the involvement of the whole community project linked to the territory.

We are fascinated by these local projects that take us back to the ancient with the awareness of the contemporary.

Below is the recipe, dedicated to the artisans who use our blend and who wish to try their hand at Micòoula.
Compared to the traditional recipe we have replaced the doses of wheat flour and rye flour with our Ryecorn.



Ryecorn Wheat Core – Type “1” flour, rye flour, toasted corn germ

2 kg Ryecorn, 50 grams of yeast, 400 grams of boiled chestnuts, 150 grams of raisins, 100 grams of walnuts, 250 grams of dried figs, 1 liter of warm water, salt to taste.


Mix the Ryecorn with warm water, salt and yeast, and then knead.

Traditionally the mixing process is done by hand, in a wooden container. Always by tradition, cooking should be done in a wood oven, as Hône’s friends teach.

When the dough is ready, let it rest by covering it, then add the dried fruit and knead again.

Once this is done, long dough salamis are created which will then be cut and, with a movement of the hands, round spheres are created, about the size of an open hand.

Each loaf will have different dimensions and weight, since the process is carried out by hand without the aid of any machine; at this point, the loaves are baked.

After about 1 hour, the loaves are removed from the oven. To understand if the loaves are cooked to perfection, you need to beat them with your knuckles on the bottom: if they emit a dark and full sound, then cooking is the right one.

After beating, the loaves should be left to rest in a wooden container, until cooling, to ensure that the moisture still inside the loaf goes away.

Perhaps the most important trick is to salt the loaves, since they must not have any traces of sugar.
