Christmas Date Swirl Cookie Recipe

1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar (or 1 c. white sugar with 1/4 c. molasses)
3 eggs
4 c. flour (whole wheat or add wheat germ and bran to unbleached flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. lite salt
1 tsp. cinnamon

1 lb. (or 2 1/2 c.) chopped dates
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. water

Cook filling over medium heat, stirring constantly until consistency
of jam. Mix dough ingredients in order. Divide in half. Roll out each
half to 1/2 inch thickness. Take cooled filling and spread over dough
and roll up like a jelly roll. Wrap rolls in unwaxed paper and freeze;
freeze hard. Turn frozen rolls as you slice them. Place slices on
greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15
minutes. (The time to bake depends on how thick you want to slice them.)
