Gluten-Free Fig Newtons: Joan Kinsley won “best gluten-free cookie” at the Minnesota State Fair with this recipe.
They have very few ingredients but still taste complex. They truly pack a lot of flavor in every bite.
The natural sweetness of the figs, augmented by maple syrup, bake for a sweet, but not overly so, treat. Joan’s Gluten-Free Fig Newtons taste best made the day prior to eating them. When doing so, they soften perfectly.
The recipe makes 16 cookies. You are going to want a double batch of these!
Joan has won multiple ribbons, including a blue ribbon for best sandwich cookie in the same year. It also went on to win best overall cookie, aka “sweepstakes” winner.
Yay Joan! Yay Everyone! Get baking and make these!
