Fig "Newton" Cookies

Recommended Posts

I got this from an internet search...so I have no idea of the pts value per cookie. Hope someone can help me with that. Also, I imagine the points value would change if whole wheat flour and light margarine was used.

 

Any help appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Title: FIG NEWTON BARS

Categories: Cookies

Yield: 36 Servings

 

3 c Flour, sifted

1/2 ts Salt

1/2 ts Cinnamon

2/3 c Butter or margarine

1/2 c Brown sugar - dark, firmly

Packed

1/2 c Brown sugar - light, firmly

Packed

2 Egg whites

1 ts Vanilla

**** FIG FILLING ****

3 c Figs, fresh, finely chopped

(see note)

1/4 c Water

2 tb Sugar

2 tb Lemon juice

 

Sift flour with salt and cinnamon. Cream butter and sugars until very

fluffy; beat in egg whites and vanilla. Slowly work in flour; wrap dough

and chill 2 to 3 hours. Meanwhile, prepare filling. Simmer the ingredients

together, stirring frequently, 5 to 7 minutes until thick. Cool but do not

chill. When dough has chilled long enough, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out dough, a small portion at a time, 1/4 inch thick and cut in pieces

about 2 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches long. Place a level teaspoon of fig

mixture in the center of each and fold dough around filling as though

folding a business letter. Flatten cookies slightly and place seam down 1

inch apart on ungreased baking sheets; bake about 12 minutes until lightly

browned and just firm. Cool on racks. NOTE: If fresh figs are not

available, substitute 2 cups finely chopped dried golden figs and increase

water to 1 cup.

No, unfortunately not.

I was really hoping someone who has the MasterCook program or does WW online could help with that. A friend of mine talked about sending me her copy of Mastercook that she's not using, but so far she hasn't.

 

And I really do love those fig cookies. Don't know that I would eat a fig plain tho! LOL
