Fresh Fig Oatmeal Cookies

Our fig tree produced an abundant supply
of ripe fresh figs this year so I decided
to make some cookies using some of them.
They are like lace cookies around the edge.
This recipe makes soft and chewy cookies.

12 fresh figs
1/2 cup granulated/white sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 large egg
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Was fresh figs and de-stem.
Cut them into quarters.
Placing them in a mixing bowl
along with the sugar, shake to coat well.
Mix in the egg, butter and shortening and
set aside, then in a seperate bowl combine
flour, oatmeal, salt, ground cloves,
baking powder and baking soda.
Add the dry ingredients to the mixture.
Drop cookies by tablespoonfuls onto a
greased or parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes,
until the edges turn brown,
remove to cool.

Really good - since I'm allergic to walnuts this was the best one for me.
