My Mom (Annie’s Baba) always baked the same sweet treats at Christmas for us, and also for neighbors and friends. She only made them at Christmastime, so I thought that was the only time she could make them! Right now I want to share with you her recipes for her Pinwheel Cookies and her Almond Crescent Cookies. She also added Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies to her Christmas cookie delights. Bake them all up, pour yourself a big glass of milk and enjoy!!
LIST OF INGREDIENTS & DIRECTIONS
1 cup pecan nuts (finely chopped)
2 ½ cups dates (also finely chopped)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Cook 5 minutes & cool.
4 cups flour
1 cup "spry" (that was on my Mom's recipe card - it's not made anymore, so use Crisco)
2 cups brown sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Then roll out dough & spread filling & roll up. Chill combo.
Slice. And bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes (if small - about 1/3 of the size I did here) or up to 20 minutes.
God Bless You & Yours, Peg
