Fresh Fig Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 9)
Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
These cookies are very good. (They remind me of some mincemeat cookies that I love.) I made some without nuts (my daughter hates nuts) and some with, very coarsely chopped. They are moist, a little chewy (which I love), and really tasty. I was looking for something to do with my fig crop without making preserves today, and I wasn't disappointed! Thanks, Pat!

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.

Batter was very dry. I altered it by adding another egg and a 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Cookies then came out wonderful.

This is an awesome recipe- the cookies are great!!!! Also an easy recipe; there is no prep work for the figs, like cooking or making preserves first. You just cut them up! Thank you!!!

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.
