Today We Celebrate Fig Newton Day!

In 1891, Philadelphia baker and fig-lover, Charles Roser, invented and patented the machine which inserted fig paste into a thick pastry dough.   His recipe was purchased Massachusetts-based Kennedy Biscuit Company.  The pastries are named after the town of Newton, Massachusetts.

In celebration, today is National Fig Newton Day!
