One of my favorite blogs, Chickens in the Road, had this recipe for “fig newtons” posted yesterday…so of course, I had to try it. Ernie doesn’t care for raisins, so I used dried cherries from last year’s gathering.
Mine are messy looking and over filled, but they’re GOOD! Thanks, Suzanne for posting the recipe :-)
I halved the recipe, filled two rolls with the dried cherry stuff, a 3rd one with strawberry/fig preserves and the last one with chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
Of course, my favorite is the chocolate…then the cherry. I’ll make these again with a few little changes and I’ll spread the center goodies a little thinner!
