Add: 1 unbeaten egg and 1 tsp vanilla
Blend in: dry ingredients
Roll out half dough on floured surface to 10" x 8" rectangle
Spread with half filling.
Roll up starting at 10" side. Wrap in waxed paper.
Repeat with second half.
Chill rolls two hours.
Slice and bake 400 degrees for 8-10 min. on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Watch carefully!
