- 1 cup walnuts, soaked overnight and dehydrated
- 1 cup (8-10) dried figs, soaked, drained and squeezed well, and chopped

- 1/3 cup of pine nuts

Make a fig paste by combining walnuts, figs, cinnamon and salt in a food processor. Blend till the nuts are ground and mix becomes sticky and forms a ball. Slice the apples into wedges around the core. Dip them in lemon juice to keep from browning and add a touch of sour taste to the bites. Spread the fig paste (about 1 tsp. or so) between two apple wedges to form a mouth, insert a piece of strawberry for a tongue. Add 6 to 8 pine nuts for teeth. Repeat for all remaining apple wedges. Place on a serving dish and share them with your loved ones.
