These amazing autumn biscuts are easy to make and need only a small bunch of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!
Dried fruit, figs in this case, and crunchy nuts, are the base of these amazing fall cookies: add some cinnamon for taste and the recipe is complete.
These biscuits are said to have been born (like many, many amazing things when it comes to food and beverage) almost by mistake, when someone wanted to make some space in the kitchen and added a couple of random ingredients to a cookie base mix.
Figs and walnuts, with their earthy tastes which perfectly represent fall and its falling colorful levaes, are just an example of what these autumn cookies can be made with.
Try different ingredients, have fun, replace the figs with raisins or a different dried fruit!
The result is bound to be just as good, and you'll be able to call the biscuits your own creation!
for 15 servings
Place room temperature butter in a bowl along with the sugar and stir to combine the two ingredients.
Add the egg yolk and let the butter and sugar absorb it.
Gradually add all the flour and cinnamon and knead vigorously with your hands until the dough is smooth and compact.
Cut the dried figs into pieces and crack the walnut kernels as well.
Place walnuts and dried figs into the cinnamon shortbread dough and knead to distribute evenly.
Divide the cookie dough in small balls and place on a baking tray covered by a baking sheet.
Bake the cookies in a preheated ventilated oven at 180 C (350 F) degrees for about 10 to 15 minutes until they are fully cooked.
Take the fig and walnut cookies out of the oven and let them cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.
