Citrus-Kissed Fig Thumbprints Recipe

Hey guys National Fig Week is always the first 7 days of November so here's another fig recipe in it's honor. This time I've picked thumbprint cookies from Betty Crocker. These cookies look great in a gift tin and sure would be a nice gift for that family your going to eat turkey dinner with. Check out the yellow and orange speckles in the cookies. Can you see the lemon and orange peal? Nice! Remember this recipe for National Cookie Month too.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 3 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup fig preserves
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sugar, if desired

INGREDIENTS:

1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, melted butter, lemon peel, orange peel, vanilla and egg until soft dough forms.

2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Using thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie. Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon preserves into each indentation.

3. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. If desired, sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature

Oh and... don't skip on the coarse sugar that's sprinkled on top unless your trying to cut down on the sugar. It really makes the cookies sparkle! :)  Pam
