Figs in a Blanket

Our classic fig cookies become even softer with time, so they're ideal for making ahead. Dried Calimyrna figs are lighter in colour than the more common Mission figs, and have a subtle nutty flavour, which works well in the cookies. Find them in the dried fruit section of your grocery store.

German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

A creamy, sweet and nutty filling takes these cakey chocolate cookies to a whole new level. Fun fact: The inspiration for them—German chocolate cake—is actually not German. They get their name from an American chocolate maker named Samuel German.
