Fig Breakfast Waffles




3/4 cup California dried figs

1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
3 egg yolks
1-1/2 cup milk

Allow figs to stand in boiling water for 10 minutes, then clip off stems and blossom ends with scissors and snip into small pieces. Reserve some for use in syrup.

Sift flour, measure, then re-sift into mixing bowl with remaining dry ingredients. Add lemon rind and finely cut figs. Combine well-beaten egg yolks with milk and melted shortening. Mix lightly into dry ingredients, then fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
