I found this recipe and really want to try it! As we're not avoiding wheat or gluten but are avoiding nuts, I will use regular flour (50% ww, 50% all purpose). I'll also use regular sugar since dd finds honey too sweet.

Almost Fig Newtons (Free of Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Eggs/Grain and Refined Sugar)

Ingredients:

Cookie:
2 Cups Blanched Almond Flour
2 Cups Potato Starch Flour
4 Tbsp Butter/margarine
1/2 Cup Raw Agave Nectar (Or Honey)
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 Tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp. Salt

Filling:
2 1/2 lbs. fresh figs
1/4 c. orange juice
4 tbsp. honey (or Agave)

Preheat Oven to 325 Degrees.

Combine all ingredients in Food Processor until they come become smooth dough.

Divide dough in half- and roll half out into a narrow long shape on parchment paper to prevent sticking (see photo below)

Spoon a thin layer or Fruit Preserves, Jelly or Fig Filling -leaving a boarder around the edges.

Fold one side of the dough over itself. Gently pinch to seal the dough. Use the palms of your hands to square the edges.

Using a sharp knife, cut the log so as to make 12 (give or take) cookies. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes. (NO LONGER- or they will lose their perfect soft texture)

Repeat with 2nd portion of dough.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies. Store at room temp in a sealed container or freeze.

You can also use dental floss to cut these. Wrap the dental floss around the log and pull tight to cut. This prevents the squishing from regular knives.
