1 cup chopped pecans

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons grated lemon rind

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Dash of salt

2 large egg whites

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar, divided

3/4 cup finely chopped dried Black Mission figs (about 8)


Preheat oven to 300°.

Combine pecans and cinnamon in a food processor; process until finely ground.

Add rind; process until blended.

Place cream of tartar, salt, and egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until foamy. Increase speed to high, and beat until stiff peaks form. Place 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Gradually add remaining sugar to egg mixture; beat at low speed until blended. Fold in pecan mixture. Add figs to reserved sugar, tossing to coat; fold fig mixture into egg mixture.

Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop egg mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake at 300° for 20 minutes or until bottom edges are lightly browned. Place pans on wire racks; cool completely.
