1/3cupcream cheeseroom temp
4-6fresh figssliced, stems removed
Place flour, salt and cut up butter into a food processor and pulse until mixture is crumbly and looks like wet sand. Slowly add water into running machine (only as much as needed) until a dough ball forms. Shape into a disk, cover in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or freeze for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl whisk together cream cheese, vanilla + almond extract, and honey until smooth.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out chilled dough (about 1/4 inch thick) and transfer to a lined baking sheet. Spread the prepared cream cheese filling over the dough leaving a 2 inch border.
Assemble the fig slices in a circular pattern to cover all of the cream cheese. Fold over the edges. Heat the apricot jam in the microwave for 30 seconds. Brush jam all over the figs.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until the crust edges are lightly browned. Cool before cutting.
