The number of cookies is an estimate and you can cut them into any size you prefer: You can make these into bars or cookies. They taste like Nutrigrain bars, which is kinda cool, but totally up to you. And of course, you can use your favorite jam or jelly recipe. Try my strawberry jam, or drunken fig jam.
To make the fig jam, cut the small stems off the figs (leave the skin on) and place them, with the other ingredients, in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil, and then simmer for about an hour, or until the figs are soft enough to be spread. Cool and place in a food processor or blender until it is smooth.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
For the dough, blend all the ingredients well. I just put it all in a food processor and give it a whirl for a few seconds until a ball of dough forms. You can also do this by hand.
Separate the dough into 2 balls and chill for a bit.
Take a ball of dough and place it on the non-stick baking mat (or parchment paper) you'll be using to bake on.
Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the ball (or other non-stick sheet) and roll the dough out to form a layer of about 12 inches by 4 inches and about 1/2 inch in thickness (about 12" x 4" x 1/2").
Spread the jam the long way on half of the rolled dough. Now use the non-stick mat to roll the cookie dough over the long way. Press the dough at the ends to sell it.
Repeat for the second ball of dough.
Bake the jelly rolls for 15 minutes, or until they are browned on the sides and top.
