Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes (2010) (Cont.)

In response to my 2010 call for Christmas cookie recipes, faithful reader Mike N. sent me the Columbus Dispatch 2010 Holiday Cookies recipe guide.  A number of the recipes look interesting.  I tried the recipe below because it looked tasty, traditional, simple, and fun to make — how often do you get to roll cookie dough into ropes, anyway? — and it was.

Swedish Logs

Ingredients:  1/2 pound butter (not margarine); 1/2 cup sugar; 2 egg yolks; 2 1/2 cups flour; 1/4 cup cinnamon; 1/2 cup sugar.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Combine butter and 1/2 cup sugar by hand.  Stir in egg yolks.  Add flour and mix thoroughly.

Mix cinnamon and remaining 1/2 cup sugar on plate.  Roll cookie dough into ropes.  Cut each rope into 1 1/2-inch pieces.  Roll pieces in cinnamon-sugar mix, being sure to coat ends.

Arrange cookies on baking sheets, and bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until firm to touch.
