Healthy Homemade Fig Newton Cookies!  Easy to make & Paleo friendly!

I’ll enjoy a cookie in the afternoon with my cold brew and thank my lucky stars I don’t have to hunker down EVER for hurricanes or any other natural disaster.  In fact, we may have blazing heat, but we don’t have natural disasters.  It’s the one perk of putting up with endless summers.  Speaking of cookies, these are literally AMAZING!  I’m so happy with the way they turned out I couldn’t be more excited, especially after the first batch was a fail.  You know the saying if at first you don’t succeed, try again… and I’m glad I did!

The first batch tasted pretty good but looked weird.  Half of them looked like little mini fig pies and the other half just looked weird.  The key to making these cookies is how you fold the dough.  Originally I tried to flip the dough over in half, but that didn’t work.  You’ve really really got to line the fig filling straight down the center and fold over each end, then close your seam.  You will likely have extra dough since you will need to cut the ends straight to make a rectangle after your roll out your dough.  I just used my extra dough to make a long cookie log which tasted amazing.  The cookie part of this recipe is based on my recipe for frosted flourless thumbprint cookies so I knew the dough would be good on its own too!
