Spiced Fig Cookie with Nuts

Spiced Golden Fig Cookies with Nuts

It’s cookie season and this Spiced Fig Cookie with Nuts is my new fave!  

Loaded with golden dried figs and crunchy walnuts, this cookie is chewy, moist and perfect for the upcoming holidays.

Spiced Golden Fig Cookies with Nuts

When you add dried figs to the batter, it does something magical!  The dried fig has a mild, nutty flavor and it melts into the batter, baking the cookie into a dreamy texture of goodness.

Put this spiced fig cookie into your cookie baking arsenal and I promise it will be a fan favorite!

And because the figs we use in this Spiced Fig Cookie are the golden dried variety, you can make this cookie any time of the year.  It’s nice to know cookies can always be in season!

We start with beautiful, dried golden figs.
