Fig Walnut Dark Chocolate Cookies

Merry Christmas everyone! I've been doing so much baking, sometimes I feel like throwing my spatula on the floor. My mum is working me like a slave elf, baking cookies and cupcakes to give as gifts to everyone we know. If I have to whip anymore butter, I might flip a... flip some baking sheets ;) I really miss my stand mixer I left in Richmond!! My withered arms are too weak for vigorous stirring :(

Anyhoo, my high school friend is visiting and she has been helping me bake! Here's one of our lovely creations.

Fig Walnut Dark Chocolate Cookies

makes 50-60 cookies

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla

1 cup dried figs, cut into raisin size
1 cup semisweet/dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt)
  • With a electric mixer, beat butter in a large bowl until fluffy. Add sugars and beat for 1 min. Beat in eggs 1 at a time and then beat in vanilla.
  • Add the dry mix and stir until just blended. Fold in the figs, chocolate and walnuts. Scoop 2 tbsp sized balls onto lined baking tray
  • Bake for 12-15 mins, or until just golden. May be soft to touch on the top, but will harden when it cools
