National Fig Newton Day

January 16th is National Fig Newton Day! I’ll be honest, the newtons and I didn’t exactly see eye to eye today and there was a point toward the end of this food adventure that I wanted to scrunch the dough and fig mixture into a huge ball and chuck it in the trash. But putting that aside, they taste just as good as the store bought kind, if not better! They’re just not as cute. So.. success?

  1. DEFINITELY a success if they taste good! No way are hands going to create the perfect little specimens that machines on an assembly line do!

  2. I’m curious…you used real figs from scratch? Still very impressive to me 🙂

    I’m not a fan of the fig newton’s myself. If I want a cookie, I’m going to oreo town. Use newtons primarily as a chaser to nyquil lol
