Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. To a food processor, add the the flour, baking powder, powdered sugar and salt. Pulse until well combined. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides to be sure everything is worked in.
  2. Add the butter in and mix until the butter resembles a small crumble in the dry ingredients. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, water and vanilla. Add to the food processor and mix until just mostly combined.
  3. Lightly flour your counter and turn the dough out. Work the dough together by hand until everything is combined. This is where you may need to sprinkle a little extra flour as you go. Form the dough into a ball and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  4. While the dough is resting you can go ahead and make the filling. Into a clean food processor add the almonds and figs. Pulse until roughly chopped. Add in the apricot preserves and orange juice and mix until finely chopped. It will resemble a thick fig jam.
  5. Back to the dough. Cut the ball of dough into 6-8 pieces. Roll each piece into a smaller ball then lightly press down one small ball at a time on a floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a strip about 1- 1 1/2 inches wide and a 1/4 inch thick. Line the center with a bit of the filling.
  6. Fold each side of the dough overtop the filling and gently press the dough together to seal it. Gently roll into a smooth log. Cut into bite size cookies.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Repeat with all the dough. Place the cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet. They don't grow so you can put them pretty close together.
  9. Bake for 14 mins or until just lightly golden. Cool completely.
  10. To make the glaze mix together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
  11. Once the cookies are cooled go ahead and put them all onto a large cookie sheet so the cookies are touching. Working in small sections because the glaze dries quickly, drizzle the glaze over each cookie and sprinkle with those fun nonpareils. Pop into a fridge for 10 minutes to harden completely.
  12. {If you are making these ahead of time, once the drizzle is hardened you can place into a freezer bag to freeze. Remove the morning you want to serve them}
