Fig or Strawberry Newtons

1/2 cup butter or shortening
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, or more
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 pint fig jam

Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat after
each addition. Add milk, vanilla, nutmeg and blend. In the first
cup of four, add baking powder and salt. Continue adding flour
until the mixture is the proper consistency for rolling dough on
floured board.

Divide dough into 2 parts. Roll between 2 pieces of waxed paper,
about 8 inches square. Remove top layer of waxed paper and make an
indentation with the back of knife across the center. Spoon jam on
half. Fold dough on center line. Cut in squares.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until light tan. Cool on
rack. Store in tight containers.

1 cup mashed figs or strawberries
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water

use as filling.
