Author/Submitted by: Jo Anne Merrill
Servings: 30
Categories: Cookies / Desserts / Peanut Butter

1  cup  all-purpose flour
2  tablespoons  sugar
1/2  teaspoon  salt
1/3  cup  vegetable shortening
3  ounces  cream cheese
2  teaspoons  milk
1/4  cup  peanut butter
3  tablespoons  apple butter

1. In a small mixing bowl, sift the flour with sugar and salt. Add shortening, cream cheese and milk. Mix on lowest speed of an electric mixer until dough begins to form well. Shape into a ball. 2. Roll out on floured surface to a 20 x 8 inch rectangle. Cut in half to make two 10 x 8-inch rectangles. 3. Spread one half with peanut butter (try crunchy peanut butter if you wish); top with the apple butter. Place the second half of dough on top of first. Brush with milk and sprinkle with a little bit of granulated sugar. 4. Cut into strips 5 x 1/2 inches. Gently twist twice. Place on well-greased cookie sheets and bake in preheated 400-degree oven for 7-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Do not overbake. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 30 twists.
