I have never really liked Fig Newtons, but my husband and children love them. And they are quite expensive to buy at the grocery store so I rarely buy them.
We were in Los Angeles at my husband’s grandmother’s house and she had a gorgeous fig tree that had figs that were over ripe and needed to be used. So I pick a bunch with the idea of making fig newtons but gluten free.
Now the funny thing is I tried these and thought they were really good. In fact I ate 3 of these cookies and had to refrain from eating more, LOL.
When my husband came home he said they were really tasty and way better than the fig newtons his mother use to make when he was a kid. So all in all I think I did really well.
