These are absolutely wonderful! My son has always called fig cookies, mountain cookies, and these are the best he's had. I used Fresh organic figs and sliced then cooked them with a bit of water and a tsp. of agave nectar. I also used organic wheat flour (rather than pastry)...MMMMMMMM...thanks!

YUM! These are like fig newtons (but muuuuch better). I wanted to halve the recipe but didn't know what to bake it in - so I decided to make them in a muffin tins, which turned out great! I just lightly packed the dough into tins until I ran out. Then I topped half with fig and topped that with the other half of dough rounds. Made great individual servings! I'll definitely make these again, though I might add an extra little bit of sugar to the dough. Thanks!

These kick fig newton's @$$! They are great for breakfast or snacks, and work really well for brown bag. It really is a pain to put the top layer on, so I've found that rolling the dough out can save you a headache, though it does make it a little tougher.

I made these on a tired Saturday night... I was too lazy to wash the food processor and attempted to puree the figs in a blender. NOT A GOOD IDEA!! Don't try that; it takes forever, with frequent stirring. But other than my little error, they were incredbly easy to make and absoloutly delicious! (I used soymilk, oil and subbed maple syrup for honey.) The texture is lovely, and the taste is fruity-sweetness heaven. :-) A definite keeper!

Super good! These will be great for breakfast! I subbed the following: soy milk, and no cal butter spray (rather than butter or oil. Thanks for posting- I can't believe no one else has rated these yet!
