Christmas Cookies

Bill:  I had fun recently making some of our favorite Christmas cookies to get ready for the holidays.  I made:


Date-Nut Pinwheels.  These are one of my favorites which my mom made for our family.  They take a little time to make, but they’re worth the extra effort.

Molasses Sugar Cookies.  These are favorites of everyone in our family.  Jill says to remember to underbake them a little so they’re squishy.  Here’s the recipe from Jill’s mom.  I used butter (no salad oil).


Brown Eyed Susans.  Here is another family favorite that originates from Jill’s grandmother.  The recipe calls for oleo which is also known as margarine.  I used butter in place of the oleo and also used butter flavored Crisco.

5 in 1 Bars.   Here is another family favorite that Jill got from her sister Patty.  We make half of the pan with butterscotch chips and half with Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips.  I also added a cup of chopped up pecans.  Here’s the recipe.
