RE: RECIPE: 5-way cookie dough

Sybil, will you settle for a 4 in 1? I found this on the Kraft site:
It's cookie time! Kraft's 4-in-1 Cookie Dough
I receive Kraft's free food & family magazine, which you can sign up for here. It's quite a nice magazine even if it really exists to promote Kraft products. The layout and photographs are just as glossy and professional as the gourmet magazines. And the recipes are very practical and easy to make.

I've decided to use their 4-in-1 cookie dough recipe to make Pinwheel Cookies for Monkey Boy's preschool's fundraising event.

4-in-1 Cookie Dough
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 1 hr 2 min

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda


BEAT cream cheese, butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
Add flour and baking soda; mix well.
The 4-in-1recipe can also be used to make Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs, Pecan Bars and Thumbprint Cookies (recipes follow).

Pinwheel Cookies
(Makes about 4 dozen cookies or 24 servings, 2 cookies each.)


Prepare dough as directed; divide in half.
Add 2 squares melted BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate to half of the dough; mix until well blended.
Divide each half into 2 equal parts. (You should have 2 white and 2 chocolate pieces.)
Roll or press 1 of the white dough pieces into 10x8-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface.
Break 1 of the chocolate pieces into smaller pieces; place on rolled-out white dough and press gently to form even layer.
Starting from one of the longer sides, roll up dough tightly to form a log; wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
Repeat with remaining dough.
Refrigerate 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cut dough into slices, each about 1/4 inch thick; place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 min. or until lightly browned.

RE: RECIPE: 5-way cookie dough

Roselin, that sounds good!

I found this on an Invision board that's no longer available. It was posted by "Squirrely Cakes"
5-way Roll-Out Sugar Cookie

Hi there. Found this recipe in a Loeb Store flyer and thought I would share it.
Basic Cookie Recipe
3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
In a bowl, cream softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy like a squirrel's tail. Beat in egg, corn syrup and vanilla extract and mix well. In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking powder and salt and then gradually stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well mixed. Wrap dough in plastic and refridgerate 1-2 hours or until firm enough to roll. Preheat oven to 375F. On a lightly floured surface roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut out into shapes with your favourite cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake about 10-15 minutes until cookies start to brown lightly. Cool completely before frosting.
1. Add 2 tsp. almond extract or orange, lemon. rum, extracts for a different flavour - substituting one of these for the vanilla in the recipe.
2. Prior to baking decorate with coloured sugars, Smarties, silver dragees, chocolate chips etc.
3. Decorate cookies with various coloured icings.
4. Prepare dough as directed but instead roll into balls, then roll in chopped nuts. Make indentation in the centres and fill with your favourite jam and bake as directed. Sort of a lazy man's version of Thimble or Thumbprint cookies.
5. Dip cooled cookies only 1/2 side into white or dark chocolate for a ying/yang effect.

Must confess, I do love the name "Squirrely Cakes". Also like the cream cheese in the 4 in 1 recipes. Ah, decisions, decisions, huh??
