Next weekend is my Dad’s Birthday. For YEARS i haven’t been able to spend his big day with him. Work has always interfered. Once again it has.
However, my mom is here this weekend and she is able to bring him a present FOR ME!
Because of previous years apart I have never baked specifically for my dad! Everyone in my life has had at least SOMETHING baked in their honor, i mean comon, i bake A LOT.
It came to my knowledge that my Dad is currently on a Fig Newtons Kick! um hello, I can make fig newtons!
I remebered seeing Jenna’s recipe a while back and knew it was the perfect time to take action!
I have never made anything like these, are they cookies? Im not even sure but they sure are tasty! I followed her directions exactly. I only let the dough chill for just under two hours while I maid the Fig Puree’, which is SO delicious by they way!

Once we soaked and cooked the figs, we popped them in the freezer for a bit to cool them off. Then it was Puree’ time
Then it was time to roll out the dough!
Then we filled the dough
3.5 rolls later!

These guys are not as chewey as your packaged variety but winners by all!
Hopefully my Dad will enjoy them
