Figs are a delicious fruit, often thought of as sacred. At one time, Greece even made it illegal to export figs, wanting to make sure that they had the advantage at the Olympic Games. Mawmaw sure would’ve high jumped for fresh figs to make her jam and preserves.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup fig preserves


Step 1

Cream sugar, butter and eggs together. Add the flour and baking soda and mix.

Step 2

Add mashed fig preserves. Mix in pecans.

Step 3

Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until a light golden brown. Do not over-bake as cookies will be hard, still taste good; but a little on the hard side.
