Make crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees and butter a 10-inch spring form pan. In a bowl with a fork stir together crust ingredients and salt and pepper to taste. Press mixture into bottom of pan and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Make filling: In a bowl with an electric mixer beat together filling ingredients and salt and pepper to taste until very smooth. Assemble torte: Pour half of filling into crust. Drop dollops of pesto over filling and spread carefully to form an even topping. (Some filling may show through.) Top pesto layer with half of fig slices, overlapping them slightly, and pour remaining filling over figs, spreading evenly. Bake torte in middle of oven 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until top is golden brown and set. Cool torte in pan on a rack (filling will deflate slightly). Chill torte, covered loosely, at least 3 hours and up to 2 days. In a small saucepan stir together preserves and vinegar and bring to a simmer. Remove pan from heat and cool mixture. Stir in salt to taste. Slice remaining pound figs into 1/4-inch thick slices. Run a thin knife around edge of pan and remove side. Spread torte with preserves mixture, leaving a 1/4-inch border, and top decoratively with remaining fig slices. With 2 large metal spatulas transfer torte to a serving plate. Serve torte at room temperature to spread on toasts. Yield: 16 to 32 as an hors doeuvre Recipe by: Cooking Live Show #CL8977 Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #846 by "Angele and Jon Freeman"
