Much like the familiar, fig-filled confections from the grocery store, our homemade version pairs a soft, cakelike cookie with a swirl of sticky, nut-studded fruit filling. Equal parts brown and granulated sugar make a moist dough with subtle, caramel-y flavor, and sweet dried dates soften during a quick simmer on the stovetop. We divide the dough in two to make it easier to handle, and then we roll it up with a smear of our cooled filling. After chilling in the refrigerator, the log just needs to be sliced and baked.

Makes about 40 cookies

Plan ahead: The dough needs time to chill twice. And don’t forget to grease the parchment paper—otherwise, these soft cookies will stick.
