Flourless Fig and Almond Bites
2 c almond meal (or finely ground almonds)
1 c (6 oz) soft dried figs, hard tips removed
2 tsp finely grated orange zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt

Position baking rack in upper third of the oven and heat to 325. Lightly 
coat baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment.

Blend almond meal, figs, orange zest, vanilla and salt in a food processor 
until mixture resembles coarse meal and has the texture of wet sand, about 
1 min. Form dough into 30 (2 tsp) slightly flattened balls and place on 
baking sheet 1/2 in. apart. (Cookies will not spread during baking.)

Bake until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned, 12-15 min., turning pan 
once halfway through. Cool and serve.
