- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 5-6 tablespoons ice water
- 6-8 fresh figs, sliced
- 2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for drizzling
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 egg, beaten
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter and mix with a pastry cutter or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough starts to come together.
- Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and shape it into a ball. Flatten the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, mix together the honey and cornstarch until well combined.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough into a rough circle, about 12 inches in diameter.
- Transfer the rolled dough onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Spread the honey and cornstarch mixture evenly over the center of the dough, leaving a border of about 2 inches.
- Arrange the sliced figs on top of the honey mixture.
- Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, pleating as necessary.
- Brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the figs are soft and juicy.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
- Drizzle with additional honey before serving.
- Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
