How to Bake Cookies and NOT Eat the Dough
OK – started the cookie baking tradition today…our family has carried on the “Date Nut Pinwheels” from my husband’s family for many years. Despite the ‘danger’ of uncooked eggs in cookie dough, it ‘beckons’ me EVERY TIME I allow myself to bake some – regardless of the season.
I DOUBLE this recipe!
1 C Butter, 1 C sugar, 1 C brown sugar, 3 eggs, – cream all together.
Add 4C flour, 1 t. soda, 1 t. cinnamon, 1/4t salt. Mix all up. Chill a bit to make rolling easier.
Date Filling: Mix 1 lb seeded, chopped dates (I buy then that way!), 1/2 C water, 1/2 C sugar, 1 C fine chopped nutmeats in sauce pan and cook a bit.
