Cinnamon Apple Cookie Swirls
Chef:  Pat Habiger - Spearville, KS          Category:  Desserts

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
3 eggs
4 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 (5 cups) apples, chopped fine
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cinnamon candies

Directions: Cream shortening, add sugars gradually and blend until smooth. Add egg, flour, baking soda, salt and vanilla. Roll out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Mix separately apples, sugar, and cinnamon candies. Simmer until very thick. Cool. Spread on dough. Roll up dough with filling, like jelly roll. Chill for several hours. Slice thinly. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes. 5-6 dozen cookies.

Notes: This is very different and fun. I have made many different swirl cookies over the years, this is about the best.
