  • 3 tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup fig preserves
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, melted butter, lemon peel, orange peel, vanilla and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Using thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie. Spoon about 1/4 teaspoon preserves into each indentation.

    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. If desired, sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

  • For even baking, make sure cookies are of the same shape and size.
  • Look for fig preserves in the specialty jams and jellies section of the super market.
