Nancy's Story

This recipe has special meaning as I acquired this when I was working. The coworker and dear friend shared this recipe with me when we had a holiday carry-in. This truly is a holiday favorite of my family and is so easy to make. Please stand guard over the cookies as you may see them disappear before your eyes (only if you want enough to serve to family and friends)

    I agree Tammy. I'm wondering if you roll out the dough like a cinnamon roll or something, sprinkle the filling and roll it up?
