Fig Newtons

Fig Newtons

I have two beautiful fig trees in my yard. Both are so  rich with fruit that I end up making a lot of fig jam every year. Fig jam is a great ingredient of many recipes. When making this dessert I often ask kids to zest the lemon skin and squeeze the juice for me. In this recipe I used carob seed; you can substitute it for ground walnuts and your newtons will turn out even better.

1 1/2 cup unsalted butter

2 tablespoons raw sugar

1 tablespoon (or more) real vanilla

2 eggs

2 teaspoon active dry yeast

Zest of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 lemon

3/4 cup cold milk

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

3 cups regular wheat flour

4 cups fig jam
