Homemade Fig Newtons
I have wanted to make homemade fig newtons since the day after I finished canning the figs
- 1/2 cup butter room temp
- 3/4 pint Fig Jam
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 pc egg
- 1 tbsp cream or milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 3/4 cup flour
Beat sugar, butter, egg, milk & vanilla until well blended.
Mix well and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Place 1/2 on well floured board knead about 6 times.
Roll out to 1/4" thick. Line 13 x 9" glass dish; spread with fig jam.
Roll remaining dough, cover figs and cut off any excess dough.
Cook at 350' 30 minutes.
