Making fig newtons at homeHave you tried making Fig Newtons at home , the delicious fig-rolled pastry at home with disappointing results?? Many of us find it extremely tough to make these at home, especially the filling. Here are some tips which might help you in your next endeavor.


Get the measurements right:

  • It is advised to have all measurements in weight since measurements in volume can be imprecise. Measurements need to be very accurate or you won’t get the right taste.


Getting the right flavor:

  • If you are looking forward to get the orange flavor in the cake you have to add a little bit of juice and orange zest in the dough also.


Thick filling:

  • If you desire a really thick filling in your Fig Newtons you have to use dried fruits instead of using fresh. If you use fresh figs, you need to know that it is full of moisture which can cause it to bubble.


Cutting cookies:

  • As soon as the cookies are removed, these need to be trimmed. It is important to use a very sharp knife so that you get 1 inches long cookies. While cookies are warm, you need to transfer them so that you can get fresh cookies.


Hope these easy tips have solved many of your queries. If you have any more tips do let us know.
