As the holidays approach and we take a deep dive into gift guides and all things Christmas, I wanted to take a moment to show things down around here. For the next two weeks I am going to be sharing two recipes that are incredibly special to our family.
The first are Tiff’s (and my husband, Andrew’s) grandmother’s Date Pinwheel Cookies. Growing up, before each and every trip they would take as a family, their grandmother, “Mom”, would pack up a tin of these cookies for the road. I have just rediscovered the recipe and have started making it myself.
Don’t let the dates deter you from this recipe, when it is married together with the sugar it turns into a sweet candied concoction that compliments this almost sugar cookie dough, so well! I hope that you can put a smile on your family’s face with this recipe this holiday season, just like I have when recreating this special recipe for Andrew. Enjoy!
