1. Take a pan and put in the figs. Add the juices and bring to a soft boil.
2. Lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until the juice has reduced considerably and the figs are soft.
3. Allow the figs to cool down completely and then process them in the food processor.
4. On a board, place ½ cup of sugar spread it out. With a rolling pin, press a sheet of puff pastry onto the sugar.
5. Spoon ½ of the fig mixture onto the dough. Roll it tightly into a log. Wrap the roll with plastic wrap and freeze for at least one hour and up to 2 months if you like.
6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line some cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
7. Take the dough from the freezer and allow it to thaw until soft enough to cut.
8. With a serrated knife, cut the dough into ½ inch thick cookies. Keep the cookies on the tray and bake for about 8 minutes.
9. Remove the tray from the oven and flip the cookies carefully to the other side.
10. Bake for an additional 4 to 5 minutes until evenly browned. Remove the tray from the oven again and allow cooling for 3 to 4 minutes. Place the cookies on a wire rack and cool down completely.
11. Serve with tea or store your cookies in an airtight container for about 4 days. Enjoy!
