Figgie Rawtons

Here’s raw version of one of my favorite cookies, the Fig Newton. I used dried figs for this recipe, as well as lucuma powder. This recipe is not too difficult to make, and super yummy! Here it is:


Outside cookie base.
Ingredients:
for the outside cookie.
1/3 to 1/2 cup raw Brazil nuts
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw walnuts
1/4 cup raw almond flour
dash pink Himalayan salt
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/2 cup pitted California dates (any variety of date will due)

Preparation:
Combine all the nuts and salt in a food processor and pulse until completely ground. Add flour and mix. Add dates and process until crumbly. Spread dough over parchment paper. Using a rolling pin roll out dough and form an even slightly thick rectangular shape. Set aside.

Figgie filling.
Ingredients:.
2 cups dried figs
1/2 cup pitted California dates (or any variety)
dash ground cinnamon
dash ground ginger

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until completely combined and gooey.
Other Ingredient:
lucuma powder for dusting

Assembly Preparation:
Spread Figgie mixture over top of rolled out cookie dough, only covering 1/2 the rectangle. Spread evenly. Fold the other side over forming a large square-like sandwich. Lightly press down. Cut off any uneven sides. Carefully slice the sandwich into small squares. Set in refrigerator to chill for about 1 hour. Dust the tops and bottoms of the cookies with lucuma powder just before serving. Enjoy!
