Fig Newtons
Serves/Makes: 18    |   Ready In: 30-60 minutes

1/2 cup butter or shortening
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, or more
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
***FIG JAM***
1 cup mashed figs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water

Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat after each addition.

Add milk, vanilla, nutmeg and blend.

In the first cup of four, add baking powder and salt. Continue adding flour until the mixture is the proper consistency for rolling dough on floured board.

To make fig newtons, divide dough into 2 parts. Roll between 2 pieces of waxed paper, about 8 inches square.

Remove top layer of waxed paper and make an indentation with the back of knife across the center. Spoon jam on half. Fold dough on center line. Cut in squares.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until light tan. Cool on rack. Store in tight containers.

For Fig Jam: Combine mashed figs, sugar and water. Cook until thick. Cool and use as filling.

Cook's Notes: You also can try strawberries instead of figs.
