  • 2 cups dried figs
  • 3 tbsps coconut sugar

  1. FOR THE FILLING: Combine the dried figs, water, lemon juice, and sugar in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer. Cover and simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the figs are soft.
  3. Mash the figs with a potato masher until you have a paste-like consistency.
  4. TO ASSEMBLE: Roll out the chilled cookie dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut off any ragged edges to make a rectangle. Cut the rectangle in half width wise.
  5. Working on one of the halves, spread a line of filling about 1 inch wide down the length closer to one edge. Fold the other side of the dough over the filling and pinch the edges together to close. Cut into 4 cookies. Or just see diagram.
  6. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
