Fig Newtons, an old favorite!

Monday, August 11th, 2014

A guest blog from a Site Coordinator in Montana,  Devannie.

I saw a post for homemade fig newtons on a Facebook page and once I got my basket I decided the recipe looked easy enough so I tried it and am very glad I did.  I had two clam shells of figs which was the perfect amount for making the recipe.  I boiled the figs per recipe and stored in fridge overnight as the temperature outside was warming up fast and didn’t want to use oven.  I made the dough the next morning and it was all so easy.  Had the cookies done by 8am (I’m an early riser) and house smelled wonderful after baking them.  I did see a post where someone cut the sugar in half and I think that would’ve been fine, you drain the figs once cooked anyway and I think the figs have enough sweetness that it would’ve been fine.  Will try that and make with wheat flour or 1/2 wheat and 1/2 white next time I make them.  The recipe is definitely a keeper!!    Devannie

Yes, 1! No way you say! Trust me, you will NOT want to share!

OK, if you have to share, figure on ~1/2 cup per person. Or ~ 8-16 servings depending on the size of produce.
