      This wonderful cookie reminded me of a kolacky more than a thumbprint cookie because of the very fruity filling. It was delicious and so easy to eat more than we should have. I think that this recipe could revolve around more than just figs, and I will try it with other dried fruit like mangos, cranberries, etc. Great recipe Barb, and easy to make.
