Grinding figs, dates, and nuts for the cookie filling
Jazz helped me prepare the filling for my grandmother's fig cookies. She willingly worked the grinder handle while I watched the boiling pot of honey, marmalade and spices. We'll be baking tomorrow. We spend Black Friday together decorating cookies, drinking cocoa and making "pie-in-the-sky" wish lists for Christmas. Inspired by my tour of Little Italy, I am delving into the world of filled, rolled, fig cookies.
Enjoy your day, where ever you are.
