Fig Pinwheels

As I mentioned yesterday...I love pinterest (because of Chez!). I now frequent that website more than facebook or my email. :) I. Am. A. FAN!! I have actually made several recipes that I find either from Everyday Paleo or online. Everyday Paleo has a 30 day meal plan that actually gives you grocery shopping lists. Its amazing!
Sundays tend to be my baking (happy place) day. Yesterday I made crock pot pork chops, fig pinwheels and Fruit N' Nut bars. All homemade. All Paleo.
I found the Pinwheels on Pinterest by Primal Palate. To find the recipe online, go here. I feel like I am more adventurous now than ever before and continue to find yummy recipes that Brian actually likes too. The Pinwheels actually turned out super yummy but not at all pretty. They taste like fig newtons with no sugar!
As you can see... they are not the most attractive cookies ever made... but they are moist, sweet and yummy. I have a sweet tooth so I needed to find recipes that could still 'fulfill my needs'. I let the dough stay in the freezer for one hour (the recipe recommended for 20 to 30 minutes) but it would not really harden. The dough rolled just fine with the fig spread but when I cut it they smashed done.
Try them. They're good. Yummy. And no sugar!
