Similar to the classic fig newtons, this easy biscuit recipe is delicious and what's more you can substitute different types of jam if you prefer.
This recipe is Great ! Made a batch and it was gone in one day. Also great because figNewtons are low Fat. - 13 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used the fig preserve recipe and blended it so that it would come out more like the newtons we know and love. The instructions were a bit confusing but the taste was incredible. I would recommend cutting them in to bars before the cookie part hardens. - 01 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are very good. I had a little trouble spreading the top layer though. I am going to make this over and over again. My kids love it. Thanks for sharing! - 28 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
