Fig Newtons in the Raw

Since among my favorite winter flavors are fig, lemon, and buttery walnuts, I made myself some raw
'fig newtons'.  They turned out quite yummy too!
 
For the crust:
1/2 c walnuts, soaked
2 T raw cashew butter
pinch of salt
3-4 dates
Process into a dough.

For the filling:
1 cup figs, chopped and soaked
1/4 c raisins, soaked
rind of 1 lemon, grated
soaking water to make a thick filling
The processor works fine for this step too.

Roll into a square for bars, or a circle for triangles.
Spread the filling on half the dough.
Fold over and score where the cookies should be separated later.

Dehydrate until they can be handled. Cut into individual cookies, then turn over.
When they reach your desired stage of dehydration...
devour.
