  • Make the Filling: In a bowl, combine the figs with 4 tablespoons of brandy and let soak overnight or up to 4 weeks.
  • In a food processor, combine the soaked figs, the remaining 2 tablespoons brandy, and all the remaining filling ingredients. Process until chopped and well combined. (Alternatively, run all the ingredients through a meat grinder. Some Italian women bring their filling ingredients to the butcher and have him grind it for them.) Keep chilled until ready to use.
  • Make the Pastry: In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and pulse to mix. Add the butter and pulse until it looks like fine crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the 2 eggs and milk. While the motor in running, pour the liquid through the feed tube until just combined and a dough is formed. Form the dough into a disk and chill 30 minutes.
  • On a floured work surface, roll out the dough 1/8-inch thick. With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut out large (3-inch long) almond shaped pieces from the dough. Transfer the pieces to a sheet pan; then chill.

  • Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to a food processor and pulse briefly to mix. Then add butter pieces in 3-4 rounds, pulsing the butter into the flour after each round. Add eggs and pulse until a dough forms around the blade. Remove dough from processor and knead briefly on a floured work surface. Divide dough into 3 pieces and shape each into a log about 12-14 inches long. Wrap logs and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a floured surface, roll out one of the cold dough logs into a 3″ x 14-16″ rectangle. (Keep the rest of the logs in the fridge because it’s much easier to work with cold dough.) You might have to whack the dough a little to get it to roll out. Scoop filling right down the middle of the rectangle and use a spoon to level it out. Roll the dough over the filling and place seam side down. Cut cookies in 1 1/2″ pieces and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. The cookies can be close together since they don’t spread much during baking. Repeat for the rest of the logs, and bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden on the bottoms. Allow cookies to cool completely before applying icing.

It takes a little time to create them, but your efforts will be rewarded. For extra flair, be sure to top the finished cookies with vanilla glaze and colorful sprinkles.
