Fig, Apple and Raspberry Scrolls

These scrolls are delicious warm on their own or topped with a generous drizzle of raspberry and lemon jam. The scrolls are soft and pull-apart with ease. When biting into them the filling bursts of sweet and indulgent figs, walnut and moist apple. What I love about these, the butter is limited and sugar content in the dough comparatively low. The sweetness comes from the figs, fresh apple and the sultanas. Why add more sugar when this is just perfect as it is.
