Best use for "blah" dried figs?

Hi all. I'm a fan of the sweet, flavorful, chewy dried figs I've been getting at Sahadi's in Brooklyn, and thought I'd save some money by getting the cheaper dried mission figs at Trader Joe's. This was a mistake since they're relatively flavorless and lack the sweet fig punch most recipes make good use of.

So, I ask: what recipes will make these worth eating? I'm leaning towards a baked item of some sort, but with lemon, or cinnamon, or somesuch to make these worth it.

I've seen savory recipes for roast pork and such but I dont' cook a lot of meat, so if you have a good savory dish that's vegetarian, I'm all ears.

Or, honestly, should I just toss them? Thank you.
