From the Desserts by the Yard cookbook.
These were a little tricky...I made a small batch one day that worked...but barely. The next day I made a larger batch and rolled the dough thicker. They worked perfectly.
Interestingly, these tasted much better on the second and third day. On the first day, the cookie had a bit of crunch. By the second and third days, the crunch was gone and they tasted alarmingly like the store bought Fig Newtons...only better.
I will make these again.
