Just putting this here so I can remember what I did. Depending on how busy I am, I will try and add pictures and actually edit it later.
An approximately 9'diameter, 3" deep basket with figs from our tree. Some not fully ripe, because my picker was very enthusiastic. I diced up the figs, leaving the skins on. Put them into a pot with 1 gram of apple pectin, 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, and the juice from one large lemon. Brought to a boil, and simmered till desired thickness. Then I used the vitamix to break up any chunks, so the jam would be smooth.
For the cookie dough, I added 1/4 lb of butter to the bowl of the kitchenaide, along with 1/2 cup of sugar. Beat them together until mixed. Added the zest from both sides of the lemon I juiced, 1 tsp vanilla, and one egg white (though I think next time I am going to just leave the yolk and see what happens), beat again. Added 1 1/2 cup of flour a 1/2 cup at a time while the kitchenaide was running. I was in a hurry, so I put the dough in saran wrap and into the freezer for about 30 minutes. Then I rolled it thin, cut out 4" wide strips, added a line of jam in the center, then folded it onto itself, and cut the roll into fig newton sized chunks. I also did finger print cookies, because a certain kid needed something she was better at helping with. Baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
