Fig and Nut cake? [Moved from Spain/Portugal board]
A friend asked me to query this board about a fig and nut cake she had when in Barcelona.
I'm not clear as to whether this was a patty of fig paste and ground nuts or a pastry with figs and nuts.
Can anyone help identify this, or share a recipe? I'm sorry I don't have a clearer description.

Hi - We've moved this thread from the Spain/Portugal board, which is focused on where to find great chow in those countries. Please post any further recipes on the Home Cooking board.
They sell a pretty decent fig and nut cake at Fairway, close to the cheese section (at 74th street and Broadway. It is beatiful served with cheeses from the same region.
Stop & Shop also sells a good one imported from Spain for around $5-$6 that I have bought in the past.
