Spiced Fig & Pear Challah | Filling Recipe

Updated: Dec 5, 2020

For a warmly spiced and naturally sweetened fruit filling perfect for challahs, crumbles, oatmeals, or pies featuring #ad D’vash Date Syrup!

As featured in my Spiced Fig & Pear Challah!


Spiced Figs & Pears

Vegan, Gluten-Free


  • 4 Bartlett pears, diced into medium-sized cubes

  • 1/3 c water

  • Juice of ½ lemon

  • 1/4 c D’vash date syrup

  • 5 sun dried figs, finely diced

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

  • ⅛ tsp allspice

  • ⅛ tsp cloves

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.

  2. Stir every minute or so until the liquids have completely reduced, pears softened, and figs rehydrated. You should be able to easily put a fork through a piece of pear, and the pears should be aromatic and covered in a thick, sticky glaze.

  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and use in challah, crumbles, oatmeal, pies, or any other way you can imagine (even on its own 😉)!
