This time of year, baking takes over many kitchens and we want to offer you one recipe that is easy, delicious, and won’t make Santa’s naughty list! These are gluten free and with a few adjustments can be dairy free as well! We hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do!

Ingredients for cookie dough:
1 stick unsalted butter, softened (for dairy free, use 1/2 cup ghee, softened)
1/4 cup honey
1 egg (can substitute 1 TBS chia seeds soaked in 3 TBS water set in fridge for 15 minutes)
3/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
lemon zest from 1/2 organic lemon

Ingredients for filling:
10 mission figs
2 TBS honey
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves

*Using a hand mixer, blend together the softened butter and honey
*Add the egg and beat to make a soft batter
*Mix in the flour a little at a time
*Mix in the lemon zest baking soda (The dough should be soft but pliable)
*Shape into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 10 minutes
*Prepare a floured surface and roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick (it helps to cover the dough with plastic wrap while you roll it out)
*Cut out an even number of shapes to make the top and bottom halves. using a smaller shape, cut out a middle section of half of the cookies (these will fit together after baking!)
*Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for about 7-9 minutes
*Let cool completely

*Soak figs in water for about half an hour to soften (reserving some of the water to thin filling if necessary)
*In a small processor, puree the figs, honey and a small amount of the reserved water as smooth as possible and set aside
Putting them together!
*Line up your bottom cookies and turn bottom side up
*Using a small spatula, gently spread about a teaspoon of the filling onto the cookie
*Gently cover with the top cookie
