A few years ago I found a recipe for making your own Fig Newtons, which are a favorite of mine. Of course when I was in the mood to try the recipe I could not find it. But, this Christmas as I was going through my Christmas magazines I found it and made a special note of where is was located. So, once the rust was over and I had recuperated from my cold I tried them out.
They are fairly labour intensive and will not become a regularly available cookie.
I also nee to play with them a bit more. The filling needs to me thicker and the dough lighter. but over all they were quite good and disappeared fairly quickly for not being chocolate.
