I"m only doing 4 stars because of the changes that I made to the recipe based on other's reviews & my preferences. I received a bunch of fresh figs from my former MIL, and I didn't have the heart to tell her that I don't usually care for figs - so I needed to do something with them that didn't taste or "feel" too figgy! I tried this recipe, making the following changes: instead of butter or shortening, I used applesauce (to reduce fat/calories), used half the sugar, ran the figs through my food processer (so the figs were more of a puree than chopped), and did half cloves/half cinnamon, plus added a dash of vanilla and a pinch of allspice. My cookies were very moist, chewy and sort of cake-like - but very, very good! I now know what to make if I get any more figs - thanks for the recipe!
