The other day, I went into a grocery store craving Fig Newtons – a snack I lived on in my childhood days and I walked out empty handed. (By the way, they’re called just Newtons now – this world works in strange ways!)
But of course, what the stomach craves, Kitchen Therapy makes! Fig Newton is a cross between a cake and a biscuit textured outer layer with a gooey centre filling of fig paste. For the dough I use a mix of both whole wheat and white flour with butter.
At Food & Wellness, we stock a delicious Fig & Almond Conserve by The Gourmet Jar, which works beautifully in this recipe – come get your jar now! Psst… this conserve is ideal for your cheese platter, to drizzle over ice cream and to stuff into your mithai as well!
