  4. Drop spoonfuls of batter on the prepared baking sheet. Top each mound with small amounts of reserved fig pulp.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookie edges are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

Delicious, not too sweet, easy to make. I added 1/4 t. of cinnamon (I LOVE cinnamon!) and 1/4 c. flour on the off chance the figs made the cookies too liquidy - these additions were perfect. N...

Left out the walnuts. Had some trouble with the dough being really sticky, but overall liked the taste of them. Kept the dough refrigerated between batches, that seemed to help.

Delicious! Recipe is great as written. The only change I made was to use pecans instead of walnuts, and I also minced the whole figs in the food processor and added to batter.

Made these almost as written -- I probably used more figs than called for and added a little more cinnamon (oh, and one time I added nutmeg) -- and they are delicious! I gave them to a friend an...

These were delicious. My edges did get a little dark but I loved the extra - little bit of texture it gave the cookies. They aren't too sweet but have a ton of flavor... and I typically love swe...

This recipe was excellent. I used 1/2 tsp gingerbread spice instead of cinnamon to add a bit more flavour, and a few more figs than called for because they were turning. The cookies were all gon...

Wow, these cookies are so good! I didn't add nuts, but doubled up on the figs. Soft & delicious!
