Do You Have Something Different To Fix For Christmas?
Do you have a new or a recipe you have not made in a very long time that you plan on making for Christmas? Here is one of the recipes I plan on making. I have not made it in years. We always liked it way back when.
Whirligig Cookies from Westinghouse Betty Furness Cookbook 1954
10 x 14 inch cookie sheet Preheat oven to 375 Baking Time 10 to 12 minutes
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg unbeaten
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, sifted before measuring
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package 6 ounces chocolate chips
Cream shortening, sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter together thoroughly. Add egg beat until light and fluffy. Sift flour with salt and soda. Add to egg mixture and blend well. Roll dough into an oblong shape 1/4 inch thick. Melt chocolate chips over boiling hot water.
Cool slightly, spread on rolled dough with spatula. Roll up like a jelly roll and chill. Slice 1/4 inch thick. Place on ungreased cooky sheet. Bake. Remove from pan to cake cooler immediately after baking. Yields about 3 dozen cookies.
