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.
