Fall Burst Cookies (aka Orange Fig Cookies)

Experimented with these cookies, and they came out well. Very fall. They almost even tasted like Fig Newtons, actually!

Fall Burst Cookies

* 3 cups blanched almond flour

* 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

* 1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt

* 6 Tbsp butter, softened

* 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar

* 2 large eggs

* 1.5 tsp vanilla extract

* 1.5 tsp almond extract

* Zest from one orange (split)

* 1 cup (approximately) dried figs, chopped


* 12-14oz coconut cream

* Juice from zested orange

* 1/2 of the orange zest

* 1 tsp vanilla extract 

* 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
Prep your cookie sheets. 
Whisk together frosting ingredients and put in refrigerator. 
Combine dry cookie ingredients in one mixing bowl, and wet ingredients in another, larger bowl. 
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. 
Mix thoroughly. 
Use a Tbsp to drop cookies on the cookie sheet. 

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly before frosting. 
Drizzle or spread frosting, depending on its consisency.
