Directions

  1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges. Line pastry with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 300°.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine figs and water. Cook and stir over low heat until water is absorbed. Remove from the heat; stir in marmalade. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Add the corn syrup, eggs, butter, vanilla and fig mixture; stir in nuts. Pour into crust.
  3. Bake at 300° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until set. Cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and marmalade; beat until soft peaks form. Serve with pie. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

"My husband enjoyed this pie. It is sweet and similar to pecan pie. I used figs from our own tree that I dried using a dehydrator."

"I made this for thanksgiving this year and it was sure a hit! My sister even said it was her new favorite pie! I only had salted butter at home so I gave the mixed nuts a quick rinse instead. I absolutely love the marmalade in this so I used all heaping measurements there :) I'm definitely going to make this a yearly tradition!"

"Everyone raved about this pie. Only change I'd make is to the whipping cream. I'd add more orange marmalade or orange extract to it."
