lazy cooks fig newtons

Hi there folks...I love fig newtons.I have always bought them..this time I thought that I would try and make them at home(the fact that they are not available here,goes a long way in convincing to make my own)Anyway after going through a hundred recipes on the net...I decided to combine a few and came up with this!They don't look very professional but......WTH they're homemade..right?BTW..they taste just the way they should

1. 2 cups flour(1 cup wholewheat and 1 cup plain flour)
2. 2 eggs
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 100 gms butter
5. 1/2 tsp baking powdr 
6. 1/2 tsp cinnamon powdr
7. 1 tablespoon honey
8. grated orange rind-1 tsp.
for the figgy mix
1. 12 dried figs
2. 3 tablespoons of brown/white sugar
3. 1/2 cup orange juice
Put these three ingrds in a pan and boil till the liquid gets absorbed by the figs....then grind to a paste and keep ready.
1Sieve the dry ingrds together(flour,baking pdr,cinnamon pdr).
2.Beat the butter and sugar together,add the eggs,honey.Add the flour...the mix will come together.
3. Now divide the mix into 4 parts,spread a little flour on a clean surface and roll out long cylinders,then use a rolling pin to flatten it.Spread the figgy mix on one rolled out piece,put the other one on top of it and press down lightly..........transfer to a greased baking tray.Repeat with the other couple.
4.Into a hot(preheated )oven they go at 180deg for 12-15 mins.
5.Take it out of the oven and cut them into 1/2 inch pcs.Store in an airtight container.
