Ingredients:
1 Cup(s) Firmly packed dried figs, as
soft as possible
1 Cup(s) Firmly packed pitted dates
1/3 Cup(s) Water
1/2 Cup(s) Plus 2 tablespoons
granulated refined sugar
1 3/4 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon(s) Ground anise seeds
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Stick Unsalted Butter
softened
4 Ounce(s) Cream cheese
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1 Egg yolk
1/4 Cup(s) Granulated raw sugar
turbinado or demerara
Directions:
In a blender puree figs and dates with water and 2 tablespoons refined
sugar. In a bowl whisk together flour, anise, baking powder, baking
soda, and salt. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together
butter, cream cheese, and remaining 1/2 cup refined sugar until light
and fluffy. Add vanilla, yolk, and flour mixture and beat until a
dough forms. Form dough into a disk. Chill dough, wrapped in waxed
paper, 1 hour, or until firm enough to handle. On a lightly floured
sheet of waxed paper with a floured rolling pin roll out dough into a
13 by 10-inch rectangle, about 1/3 inch thick. Drop fig mixture by
spoonfuls onto dough and gently spread an even layer over dough.
Starting with a long side, roll dough jelly-roll fashion into a
13-inch log, using waxed paper as a guide. Roll log in raw sugar to
coat. Chill log, wrapped in wax paper, 4 hours, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter 2 baking sheets. Cut
log into 1/3-inch thick rounds and arrange about 2 inches apart on a
baking sheets. Bake cookies in batches in middle of oven until pale
golden, about 13 minutes, and transfer to racks to cool. Yield: 36
