Aunt Fanny's Cookies

Recipe by the_cookie_lady

From Jo Ann Shirley's 1978 Cakes and Cookies cookbook. These are a pinwheel type cookie that has a sugar-cinnamon-walnut mixture rolled with a sugar dough. The dough does need to be chilled before rolling, but that chilling time has not been factored into the prep time. And I don't know how long they should be baked so let us all know if you try it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift together flour, sugar and salt into a bowl. Add beaten egg yolks and milk and mix to a firm dough. Chill.
  2. Combine walnuts, sugar and cinnamon. Add a little cream to make a paste.
  3. Roll out dough in a long rectangle that is 1/8” thick. Spread walnut mixture over dough and roll up, starting with the long side. Cut into ¼” thick slices. Put onto greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake @ 375 degrees until golden brown.
