Gather dough into a ball and remove from bowl, cover with plastic wrap or parchment paper and press into a squat rectangle. Let chill in the fridge for at least an hour, ideally two, and up to overnight.
Once both logs are rolled, cut into 1 inch thick pieces and set on baking sheet, seam down. The fig cookies can be close to each, just not touching. If the dough feels too soft to cut easily, place the rolls back in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.
Baking for about 16 minutes or until cookies are lightly puffed and golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes. The crust will be crisp when it comes out of the oven, but don’t fret, it softens up wonderfully after sitting in an air tight container overnight.
