My mom made these every year, and maybe I'll try them this Christmas!
This comes from the 1953 edition of BH&G.  I think there's another
pinwheel cookie recipe in the new BH&G, one with chocolate, if that's
the one you want, let me know and I'll find my new copy.

Date Pin Wheels

1 lb pitted dates, chopped
1/2 c water
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 c sifted flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chopped nuts

Combine dates, water, and 1/2 c granulated sugar in saucepan.  Cook
until thick (2-3 min), stirring constantly.  Cool.

Thoroughly cream butter and sugars; add egg and beat well.  Add vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients.  Add to creamed mixture and stir until smooth.

Divide dough in half; roll one part on a well-floured surface until 1/4"
thick.  Combine dates mixture and nuts and spread half over dough.  Roll
like a jelly roll.  Wrap in waxed paper with open edge of roll on the
bottom.  Repeat with remaining dough and filling.  Chill rolls until
firm.

Cut into 1/4" slices.  Place on lightly greased baking sheet and bake in
hot oven (400') 8-10 min.  Makes 5 dozen.

Is this a chocolate/white pinwheel?
