This recipe comes from one of my all time favorite cookbooks, More Make a Mix Cookery by Karine Eliason, Nevada Harward and Madeline Westover. The recipes makes 4 "logs" that when baked yields 3 dozen wonderful cookies. These are great for gift giving and can be a real time saver around the holidays.

Very good, I am looking forward to using the "logs" I have in the freezer. I went ahead and baked up a roll tonight after letting it chill in the freezer for a couple hours. These are yummy. Thanks for posting!! Made for I Recommend Tag Game

I also was impressed being able to make and slice the log without destroying them. I haven't had luck trying this with another recipe. Of course I had to bake some and they were wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe that I will use again.

Paula - these are delicious cookies and it makes 4 perfect rolls. I baked one roll up today and have had the other 3 in the freezer for 3 days and it works so perfectly! I'm impressed as I thought it would break up but it didn't. The cookies are nice and crispy outside and chewy inside! I'm definitely making these often and sharing with my daughter - so much better than her buying the prepackaged stuff and for me easy to put some cookies in the oven when I don't have a lot of time! I omitted the nuts as a personal preference and just added some more chips instead. One roll gave me 36 cookies exactly! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Made for 123 Hits :)
