Fig Drop Cookies

"This is what I ended up with from playing with a recipe from a library book. I think they ended up pretty good. Sweet and chewy with texture from the fig and pecans. I plan to play with it more to see if applesauce can replace some of the butter and if less sugar can be added or if Splenda can be used. Feel free to try them how you like."

    Sorry! I followed the directions to a "T". These were a lot of work, especially working with the sticky figs. They taste OK, but not worth the prep time.

    This are delicious and healthy. I did cut down the sugar to 1/2 cup. I liked them, hubby thought they could be sweeter. I also used butter. Thanks for a delish recipe!

    I friend described these as a cross between fig newtons and ginger snaps, turns out it's an excellent combination. I used more than a cup of figs and a half butter half shortning cobination to produce cute little cookies that had barely any spread on the pan. I'll definitely be making more of these.
