Oh, momma, are these good! I did change one thing - I used 1&1/2 t orange zest and 1/2 t lemon zest, instead of the 2t lemon zest. I've always thought orange goes with figs (and cinnamon) better than lemon does. My cookies turned out a little flatter than the ones in the pic, but they tasted fantastic. I will definitely make these again very soon!

Wow! These are melt-in-your-mouth fantastic! I followed the prior reviewer's suggestion and used half orange zest and half lemon zest, and I would do so again. Mine weren't as thick as shown but I think I didn't beat the egg whites long enough. Still delicious, and pretty!
