How to make it

  • Beat together the butter and sugar until light.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, and mix until smooth.
  • Add the mascarpone cheese, and beat until smooth.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients, and fold them into the butter mixture, mixing just until combined.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Place sheets of parchment paper, or silicone baking liners on two cookie pans.
  • On a lightly floured counter or board, roll the dough into 1/2 inch balls.
  • Using a blunt round object like the end of a wooden spoon, create an indentation in the center of each cookie.
  • Place the cookies 2 inches apart, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or just as the cookies begin to color.
  • While still warm, use the spoon to redifine the circle, and then carefully spoon a little jam into each cookie.
  • Let sit at room temperature until the jam is set.
  • Store in an airtight container.

    I am probably one of a small group that really like figs!!! Luckily, I have a farmer's market near me that sells fig jam :) Thanks for posting.
