On the 5th day of Christmas, another raw Christmas cookie recipe hit my inbox. I doubt I’ll have time to make this recipe today as I have loads to do around the house. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen trying out some new recipes as I plan my Christmas Eve menu but haven’t had time to post them here for you. You’ll have to make do with a few more recipes from the FREE 12-Days of Christmas Cookie mini-course. If you’re making this recipe for someone with gluten intolerance, be sure that your vanilla extract is gluten-free.
1/2 cup soaked dried figs
4 or 5 fresh figs
1 cup almond pulp
1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
Blend the fresh and dried figs with the almond pulp. Add vanilla. If the dough is still too dry add some of the water used for soaking the figs.
I did this in a rectangular shape then scored in triangles to make a different shapes from other cookies. Before dehydrating place a slivered almond on top to decorate.
