Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Makes three batches of dough. Dough can be frozen until needed.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Cream together butter or margarine and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Sift together cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and flour. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture slowly, mixing well. Add vanilla.
  • Divide dough into three portions and place on waxed paper. Chill until set.
  • While batter is chilling, make filling. Combine dates, chopped pecans, water and white sugar over low heat. Heat until filling is of a paste-like consistency.
  • Roll dough out to make a thin layer. Place 1/3 of filling on the dough and roll up. Repeat the process for the other 2 sections of dough. Rolls can be baked right away or frozen until needed.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Cut 1/4 inch slices off of rolls with a sharp knife. Place slices on greased cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes.
