   20                    California dried figs
                         -- stewed, unsweetened
    2       c            Sifted all-purpose flour
    4 1/2   ts           Baking powder
    2       tb           Sugar
    1       t            Salt

      3/4   c            Milk (about)
 
   Butter muffin pans generously.  Snip stems off stewed
   figs and place figs in mixing bowl.  Beat them hard,
   until whirled into small bits.  Sift flour, measure
   and sift again with baking powder, sugar and salt.
   Add dry ingredients to figs and mix lightly.  Add
   eggs, shortening and milk, and stir together until
   just mixed.  Fill muffin pans half full.  Bake in hot
   oven (400 F.) for about 12 minutes or until lightly
   browned.
