AUNT JULIA'S CREAM CHEESE ROLL-UPS
This recipe is another
one of Aunt Julia's famous specialties. She made
them, at all times of the year, but
particularly at Christmastime. When they
are made with candied red and green cherries,
dates and pineapple, they look
like a pile of colorful jewels. There is no sugar in the dough
are rolled out on powdered sugar, which sweetens
the cookies automatically.
CREAM CHEESE ROLL-UPS
Cream together: 1 cup butter or margarine
1/2 pound cream cheese.
Blend in: 2 cups sifted flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Chill dough thoroughly, at least 12 hours. Dough
keeps for several days with no problems.
Sift powdered sugar on work surface and roll dough out 1/8 inch
thick. Cut into strips 1?3 inches and roll around
pieces of candied fruit and pitted dates.
Bake at 375 degrees until barely golden on bottom.
You could use dried apricots, cherries, nuts,
etc., as well as dates and candied fruits.
Experiment a little. Do they make apple crisp, etc.? I
know there are a lot of recipes for vegans where
tofu is used in various ways to replace
date and egg products -- presumably they already know about
