    Shaye's Note:

    Crisp brown sugar cookies spiraled with date filling. My MIL used to make these, now the tradition has fallen to me. The rolls freeze beautifully, and it's easy to cut just a few for a quick snack. Prep time includes chilling.

      These are an all time holiday favorite. My mother always made these cookies for my friend, but this year she is ill and can make cookies, so I made them. Great.

      This recipe is different than my recipe after looking at the recipe, so I am not going to rate it.
