We do enjoy figs, & their pairing with the pecans in this recipe made for some very satisfyingly flavorful cookies! No chance that they'd go stale in our house, that's for sure! Will make these again, without a doubt! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
