I am looking for a cookie recipe. It is from one of the pillsbury bakeoff cookbooks. The paperbacks. I think it was called chocolate curls, but might have been chocolate twirls or swirls. Maybe it wasnt even called that. It was a chocolate dough and you take a piece of dough and roll it like a little rope, then twist it together like a pinwheel. Then roll it in nuts and brown sugar. If anybody have any variations of this recipe please send it to me. It was sometime from 1970 to 1992, again I think...LOL!!!.I am going by what my mother is telling me. Getting the recipe and making them for her would be such a great christmas present. Thanks
Hi Chris Well I am trying to find this recipe for my mother. She says that it was a chocolate dough recipe. After you roll a piece of dough into a little rope, you roll the rope into a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon and she says maybe ground nuts. You take that rope and roll it into a pinwheel shape and bake. It must not be called chocolate curls like she thinks, because I can't find a cookie recipe anywhere with that name, that matches this description.
from the 1965 100 New Bake-Off Recipes of Pillsbury's 16th Grand National Bakeoff
1 c. Land O' Lakes Butter 3/4 c. confectioners' or granulated sugar 1/2 c. Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted 1.2 c. finely chopped Diamond walnuts 2 c. sifted Pillsbury's Best flour - regular or self-rising 1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Cream butter in mixing bowl. Add sugar; continue creaming until light and fluffy. Blend in chocolate morsels and 1/4 c. walnuts. Add flour: mix well. If necessary, chill for easier handling. Combine 1/4 c. walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into 6 " strips. Roll in sugar mixture. Place one end of strip on ungreased cookie sheet, coil around to make a round, flat cookie. Bake at 325º F for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly; remove from sheet. Makes about 60 cookies.
Hello Chris, Oh my goodness!!!!! I don't know how to thank you, I really mean it. My mother is going to be so surprised. I am going to make them for her tomorrow. Thank you so much for taking time to look for this recipe. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
Hey Chris, Can you read the recipe again, please? When do you put the flour in and do you put half the walnuts in the dough and use the other half with the sugar mixture. Also the brown sugar and cinnamon is for the sugar mixture and doesn't go in the dough right? Thanks and sorry to bother you again
Hi Kelly, Oops! I fixed the recipe for you! I had missed one line - an important one! You are right the 1/4 c. nuts, cinnamon and sugar is what the cookies are rolled in! It's all set now! I must have been 1/2 asleep when I first typed it!
