This recipes takes a little playing around, but it really worth it for the oohs and aahs and the "did you really bake this yourself?"

These are good cookies Mirj! As you MIGHT be able to notice from the picture I'm posting , I changed oooooone little thing LOL I don't like white chocolate , so I replaced the 2 oz of white chocolate with 2 oz. of cherry baking chips ... so I got a cherry/chocolate thing goin' on ... Love the look of the cookies! Had a devil of a time getting the dough laid out nicely , but finally accomplished that ... also I ended up having to let the rolled up dough in the fridge overnight. The only thing I would suggest is before trying to cut the cookies if you have to do that , is let the dough warm up just a bit ... the ends of the roll wanted to crumble otherwise. That of course was my fault for having to leave it in the fridge so long. I can see red and green swirls for Christmas ;) Thanks so much for posting , it's always fun to try new cookies! :)
