Fresh Fig Cookies

I recently received a bunch of fresh figs. Since they aren’t grown around here I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to try them.  They are very different from fig newton cookies!  I have heard they are good in smoothies but haven’t tried it yet. I did try this cookie recipe from allrecipes.com last night. Here it is with my changes. I really liked them fresh although they weren’t as good the next day, a little dry.

  • 1/2 cup sucanat
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup chopped fresh figs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Cream sugar and shortening and add beaten egg.
  3. Sift dry ingredients and blend with creamed mixture. Fold in figs and nuts.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls on greased sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
