How To Make Homemade Fig Newtons_ Video

Our family ate fresh figs this summer until we were blue in the face. So much so that Chloe had so many one day she said her mouth started to itch. She is definitely my daughter. I can't consume enough figs. They're one of my fruit passions.

After realizing at the farmers' market this past Sunday that it was the end of fig season, I decided it was time for me to buy luscious dried ones and make one of my favorite homemade treats_ Homemade Fig Newtons. My kids ask for these cookies so much I always double my recipe and keep at least half of the bars stored in the freezer to pack in school lunch or have on hand for an after school snack.

If you never imagined you could make one of your favorite childhood treats from scratch, this video will demonstrate just how easy it is.

    Would it work to substitute strawberries or similar fruit via the same method? Or would it be too runny?

      If you use dried fruit it'll work! Fresh fruit will be more tricky because of the moisture level!

    Can you use fresh figs and just leave out the extra liquid?
