Jamie Geller shares her recipe for Fig Walnut Cookies


  • Prep Time : 15 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 15 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 30 min




  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried figs
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 2 baking sheets and line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt and mix well.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream margarine and sugar for 2 minutes or until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well to combine. Add honey and vanilla and mix well. Add flour mixture and stir to combine. Add figs and walnuts and stir just until well mixed.
  4. Place 12 heaping tablespoons on each baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.

Repeat with remaining dough.

    These cookies were good. If I were to make them again I would probably cut the fig pieces a little bit smaller than I did and maybe that should be qualified a bit better in the recipe.

    • Ok thanks so much for the feedback – I really appreciate it — will make a note in the recipe.

  2. Delicious cookies; love them. I did substitute pecans for the walnuts since my husband will not go near anything made with walnuts.

    • I love pecans too! Thanks so much for commenting and letting us know you loved!

    These were AMAZING! I sub.the margarine for coconut oil and it worked out well! Makes a nice healthy option.

    • YAY YAY YAY! Thanks for letting us know. I am just loving experimenting with coconut oil for all kinds of things – cooking and baking and as an eye makeup remover and as eye wrinkle cream (LOL!)

        Isn’t just the best stuff? Who can beat a food product and beauty product all in one jar :) lol!

        • TOTALLY!!! Hubby says I smell like a “donut” (there are worse things to smell like – that’s for sure!)
