Ingredients:  
5 c flour
1 ½ c sifted confectioners sugar
2 T baking powder
1 c shortening (butter or whatever)
3 eggs
1 T vanilla (or whatever flavor you would like)

Directions:
Directions:
Sift flour and measure. Resift with sugar and baking powder into bowl. Cut in shortening until it looks like coarse cornmeal. Do this by hand because the dough is heavy for a mixer. Make a center in the flour and add the eggs, and vanilla, mix and knead the dough well for about 5 minutes until smooth, adding a little more flour if it seems too soft and sticky. Pinch off bits of the dough about the size of a small apricot, and form into desired shape. Place on greased cooking sheet 1 inch apart and bake in hot 450 deg oven for 10 minutes until light golden brown. **Alternatively, roll sections of dough out to ¼” x 4 ½” wide, spread fig cookie mixture, and roll to make log. Cut into 1” cookies.

AWESOME! Momma and I made these for Christmas 2004. Momma says they tasted just like Grandma Bruno’s fig cookies. Everyone – kids and adults – loved these!

Momma and I made these again for Easter 2014.
