Recipe: Fig, Lemon, Olive, and Rosemary Cookies

Fig and Olive CookiesWhen I have insomnia, a not infrequent occurrence, I lie in bed cataloging the contents of my refrigerator. I plan and replan how I can use the available food. As a result, I am the queen of leftovers; my midnight musings often result in new creations, with the leftovers being just one among many flavorful ingredients.

Last week, my CSA box from Full Circle Farm contained lovely, organic, black Mission figs from California. I ate some fresh, and used others in an excellent grilled cheddar cheese sandwich. When insomnia next struck, my mind turned to the figs left in the refrigerator.

I thought I was the only one who was thinking about what to cook when she couldn't sleep. I am sleeping better lately, but there was a time when I did that regularly too. The cookies sound absolutely inspired. Wish I could taste them right now.

Laurie, bravo....a lovely cookie, tart but that's a nice side to a coffee or tea.
