This recipe is Great ! Made a batch and it was gone in one day. Also great because figNewtons are low Fat.
This was OK. For me, 2 cups of preserves is too much. The bar is overly sweet and the top crust slides around on the preserves. I'll serve them, but if I make them again I'll cut down on the filling. I used whole wheat flour and butter instead of shortening and that worked out well. The cookie part was good.
I used the fig preserve recipe and blended it so that it would come out more like the newtons we know and love. The instructions were a bit confusing but the taste was incredible. I would recommend cutting them in to bars before the cookie part hardens.
These are very good. I had a little trouble spreading the top layer though. I am going to make this over and over again. My kids love it. Thanks for sharing!
Yum! Used Ficoco spread (fig&cocoa jam), only used about 1.25 cups of it. Put on a jelly roll pan and it really spread out- only cooked for 20 min instead of 40. My friend said she likes them better than fig newtons! Thanks :)
Very good and very easy...Try it!
This was a very good fig coffee cake-ish thing but it bore no resemblence to fig neutons whatsoever. >.< I made the fig preserves out of 20 figs a cup of sugar and some water and suregel but not the whole package just a little bit. So I made fig preserves from scratch and I still didn't get fig nuetons! RRRRRRRRR!!
The dough wouldn't spread at all, wouldn't stick to the cookie sheet and the cookie isn't very flavorful. Easier just to buy Newtons.
