A whole wheat cookie—one more reason to have another.
Cream the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy.
Separate the eggs. Add the yolks and vanilla extract to the butter mixture. If using nuts, place the egg whites in a shallow dish on the side and whisk them until bubbly and frothy (the egg whites will be used to keep the nuts on the cookies). If not using nuts, discard the egg whites or save for another use.
Add the flours and salt to the butter mixture. Mix until just combined. Form into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes and preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Take out of the refrigerator. Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter. If using topping, dip the balls into the egg whites then roll them into the topping until covered. Place the balls on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Press down with your thumb to make a small well in the center of the cookie. Do not press too hard or the cookie will fall apart. Fill with 1/2 teaspoon of fig spread.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly firm. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet to firm up before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
