If you like Fig Newtons this is a great recipe
How to make it:
- 2 cups dried figs, stems removed, chopped (food processor works very well)
- 1/2 cup sugar (your choice)
- 3/4 cup water
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup butter or ghee
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2-1/2 cups BTD flour, might need more if dough is too sticky in bowl
- 1/4 teaspoon soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- In a saucepan, combine figs, sugar, water and lemon juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thick and jam-like. Cool.
- In a bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, soda and salt. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface and knead a few times to make a smooth ball.
- With a floured rolling pin, roll dough out to a 14x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough with a knife into 4 strips, 3-1/2 inches wide and 12 inches long.
- Spoon filling in a mound down the center of each strip. Using a spatula, turn in side of each strip to enclose filling, press edges together. With a sharp knife, cut each strip into 10 pieces.
- Place seam-side down on greased baking sheets and bake at 375 Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are puffed and firm to the touch.
- Cool on rack and store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
