    PaulaG's Note:

    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.

      I used a brown sugar substitute for this recipe, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. The cookies turned out perfectly. I froze three of the rolls and baked the fourth one. The cookies were light, not too sweet and goes great with a cup of tea or coffee. I have plenty of cookies from the one roll. The bonus is I have three more rolls in the freezer and can have yummy cookies any time I am in the mood. :) Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Paula. This one is going straight into the keeper file. Made for October 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

      Another one of Paula's wonderful recipes. I only made 1/4 of the recipe since I only wanted to make one log of cookies this time. I like the idea that you can make 4 rolls and freeze them for later use. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
