    Roll or pat dough into rectangle, 16x8 inches, between sheets of waxed paper or plastic wrap. Remove top sheet. Spread dough with cooled Apple-Date Filling. Roll up dough with filling inside, starting with 16-inch side and using waxed paper to lift and roll. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until firm.

    Heat oven to 375°F. Cut roll with sharp knife into 1/4-inch slices, occasionally cleaning off knife. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack; cool.

  • Shape up your cookies! Rotate the roll slightly with each cut so the roll stays rounded.
