Homemade fig bars

I have a bag of dried figs I bought from our co-op that no one has really wanted to eat, and I did not want them to go bad, so I made them into yummy homemade fig bars.(Like fig newtons).

1/2 cup butter
2 small eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup dried figs stems removed
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup water
1 tablespoon flour

Make first:
Grind figs in food processor with 1 cup water, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and 2 tablespoons honey. Bring to a boil, turn down to low and stir until it has cooked down into a paste, about 7-10 minutes. Cream butter and white sugar, add vanilla, flour, salt and soda. Roll out half of dough and place in 9X13 greased pan. Spread filling on top of dough, and roll remaining dough and place onto filling. Bake at 375for about 15 minutes or until slightly browned. Cut into bars when cooled.
