Italian Fig Cookies I

Rating: 4.39 stars
This recipe has been handed down through my mother's family for years. My grandmother brought it with her from Italy in the early 1900's. My mom taught me the recipe this year. Now I am the designated person in our family to make the Fig Cookies. This is a very high honor. So they must be as good as my Grandmothers' cookies. Some call them Homemade Fig Newtons. They are a tradition at Christmas and are wonderful with a hot cup of coffee. They are lot of work. I make them in stages. First the dough, then a few days later the figs, and finally I will make the cookies. The dough and the figs keep well in the refrigerator and the cookies freeze very well.

Sicilian Fig Cookies

Rating: 4.45 stars
A delicious fig-filled pastry. You may substitute the figs with dried apricots or dates. Hazelnuts can also be used in place of the walnuts.

Coricos Sonorenses

Coricos are Mexican cookies made out of corn flour. They are really, really good and super easy to make! You can't mess it up with this recipe. When I was 8 my aunt taught me how to make them. They are a soft and sweet, traditional Mexican dessert originally baked in Sonora.

Inspiration and Ideas

Fig Newton-ish Cookies
Rating: Unrated
This is a dark, not very sweet, fig-filled cookie, basically a homemade fig newton. The crust gets a toasty flavor from whole wheat flour and walnuts, while the fig filling really lets the dark flavor of the fruit come through. These are definitely better the next day, as the cookies soften and the flavors get a chance to meld together.
Cranberry-Orange Brownies
This is the perfect fall brownie! I absolutely love how these come out. The orange blossom water adds a delicate sweetness to the fudgy chocolate, while the cranberries give a surprising tangy flavor. The only problem is these brownies do not last very long--they'll be gone the second you put them on the table!

Keto Cranberry Streusel Bars

Low-carb bars with a good balance of sweet-tart for breakfast, dessert, or a snack. The kids will love them too!
