Homemade Fig Newtons

Homemade Fig Newtons are a healthy yet addictive snack!  These cookie bars may be made with minimal sugar, but you won't be able to get enough of them!

Simple Ingredients

Make sure you check out the ingredient list for the filling and for the cookies themselves! 

Make the Filling

Bring the filling ingredients to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer for 40-50 minutes, stirring often. Then, let cool. 

Prepare the Cookies

Mix the dry ingredients together and form the dough. Next, roll it out and freeze one section for the top crust, and bake the other for the base.

Add Filling

Spread the filling over the baked layer of cookie dough, and add the remaining layer that was frozen on top. 

Bake Again

Bake your fig newtons once more for 20-25 minutes. Let them cool, and then slice and enjoy!
