"Thick cookies made with fresh figs and walnuts are not overbearingly sweet, but just right. Taste great in the morning with some tea or lemonade!"

golden brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
fresh figs, halved
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. Next time, I might lightly sprinkle sugar on the cookies before baking just for a little extra pizazz.
I doubled the figs and left out the walnuts (we're not walnut fans) and YUM! very good. Nice and chewy and not too sweet, even with the extra figs.
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 gone within an hour of baking them!
