Great fig recipe, although I changed a few things. I omitted the cloves. Also, Instead of using walnuts, I used pecans. I made the first batch into fairly large cookies. They were very cake like. The second batch, I made a lot smaller, they were perfect. Definitely will make these again!
Made these twice now and both times they came out completely different. The only change is I didn't put the cloves in. I'm thinking next time I will add some oatmeal as the dough still seems too gooey. They need something to thicken them up.
These are very good. Very soft and cake like. If I do make these again I'll put in a small cake pan. I didn't have any cloves so I had to omit. I did put in 1/2 tsp vanilla. Now I just have to hope my neighbor gives me more figs!
This cookie is SO good! It is moist and sweet. It's almost cake like. I was a little worried after step 3 before the figs were added. The batter looked too dry. I made one slight change. I added about 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract and some lemon zest to the sugar/shortening mix. Very delicious!
These cookies are yummy good. They are very much on the moist cakelike side for sure..I used 1/2 the cloves called for and replaced other half with cinnamon. My friend came over and i said have a cookie and she said "Oh i don't do figs". I said just try it she preceeded to eat several more and then a few more after that.
I have limited experience with figs (meaning I've eaten only fig bars from the store) so I was a little skeptical of this recipe. However it was easy to prepare and made an attractive cookie with an interesting texture. I don't like cloves so I used ground cinnamon instead. I didn't really taste the figs so much but the walnuts gave them great crunch. My three-year-old and one-year-old both came back for more!
Good use for leftover fresh figs. The dough didn't really come together until the figs were added. Very moist but honestly figs aren't in the same category as chocolate chip cookies for me. For a fig cookie though I say give it a try.
