This is my version of a “Fig Tornado”.
The fig tornado are rye, fig and walnuts sticks from a fantastic bakery called “La Main qui Pense” in Japan, near where I used to live.
I loved them soooooo much, so I had to try to make them!
This is my first attempt at a fig tornado and it turned out to be pretty good! Quite close to how I remember them.
I love the smell of rye and the crunchiness of dry figs and walnuts!! They were so good when I had them, still warm, straight out of the oven. Yummmm
I could put a bit more dry figs and chop them up a bit smaller to make it easier to shape the sticks. I should also spend a bit more time shaping them to achieve a better look?
Anyway, it is a really good, healthy snack. My mesdemoiselles loved them too. 🙂
I will definitely be making this again and again.
