Recipe Ingredients for Fig Pinwheels

2.5 cup All Purpose Flour
1 serving Coarse Kosher Salt
0.5 tsp Baking Soda
16 tbsp Ultra Creamy Butter Unsalted
0.5 cup Sugars, Granulated
0.5 cup, packed Sugars, Brown
2 large Egg, Whole
1.25 cup Mission Figs
2 cherry Maraschino Cherries
1 cup, packed Raisins, Golden Seedless
1.5 serving Apple Juice
4 fl oz Orange Juice Premium Fresh Squeezed with Calcium No Pulp

Recipe Directions for Fig Pinwheels

  1. Make dough: Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl, set aside. Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Divide dough in half, and wrap each half in plastic. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour or overnight.

  2. Transfer one of the dough halves to a lightly floured piece of parchment paper. Roll out to a 10-by-12-inch rectangle, trim edges with a knife. Repeat with remaining dough half. Transfer each rectangle on parchment to a baking sheet. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  3. Make filling: Bring figs, raisins, and juices to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring often, until fruit has softened and only a few tablespoons of liquid remain, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely. Transfer fig mixture to a food processor, and puree until smooth. Spread half the filling over each rectangle. Starting with a long side, roll dough into a log. Wrap each log in plastic; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour or overnight.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices using a sharp knife, transferring to baking sheets lined with parchment paper (and reshaping into rounds, if needed) as you work. Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until edges turn golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks.
