Line a 12 x 17″ rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Evenly spread 1/2 of cookie dough on sheet. (I used a butter knife and spread it like peanut butter on bread)
Chill the pan in the freezer until some what firm. 20 minutes or so…
Spread fig filling over the cookie dough. Freeze until very firm. At least an hour.
Spread remaining cookie dough over the filling. Butter knife method seemed to work best.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 35 – 40 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Will freeze fairly well, but you will want to seperate layers with waxed paper.

Makes 64 cookies.
