This is the best...melts in your mouth.

Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

1 1/3 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg (beaten)
1 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Mix 1/3 c. sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining sugar. Combine egg, milk, and oil; add to flour mixture. Stir by hand just until moistened. Pour half the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half the cinnamon mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Draw a knife through batter to marble.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool. Wrap and store bread overnight before slicing. Serves 16

 This is a version of a fave cookie. Never tried this recipe butt liked it cause it was from Martha White, as well note the last line!!

 

 
Martha White
PFFERNEUSE
A Traditional Christmas Cookie
by Erna Duerksen
 
This is another recipe which my grandmother brought with her from Germany. This recipe is a variant of the Pepper Nut cookie except that it uses ground Star Anise instead of pepper. Hopefully you will be able to locate all the required spices.
 
Ingredients
2 Cups (or a whole box if, you're not on a diet) of Brown Sugar
2 Cups White Sugar
1 Cup Shortening or Oleo Margarine
1 Can condensed milk
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
3-5 cups Martha White Flour
½ to 1 teaspoon Allspice or ¼ teaspoon of each:
cloves
nutmeg
mace
ginger
cinnamon
Adjust to taste.
1 teaspoon fine ground brown star anise.
Use the real Anise if you can find it. The star seeds are hard as rocks so you'll have to find some way to grind them. I use a hammer on a steel plate and then finish them off by hand. It is worth the effort! Hopefully you can find it already ground.
 
Directions
Mix the brown sugar, white sugar, shortening and condensed milk thoroughly. Use a heavy wooden spoon or your hands as the dough is always very thick and stiff.
Beat the 2 eggs slightly and add. Then add all of the spices, vanilla and baking powder.
Add 3 Cups Martha White Flour and mix thoroughly. Add more flour until dough is stiff. Usually one more cup will do but, practice makes perfect. Its best to start with three and add at least one more as the dough is worked.
Make long rolls on a cookie sheet about 1/2 in thick.
Slice into disks about ¼ inch thick. Be careful that the disks remain standing on edge and do not fall over and that there is adequate space between them so they will cook evenly. They will expand sideways but if they touch, they will break apart later. If they fall over, you'll have a bunch of tiny pancakes so try and not let that happen.
Cover with wax paper or damp towel and put into refrigerator for ½ day or over night.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes at 375 °F. Don't let them burn. A convection oven also works the same.
Eat em till you pop!

Christmas cookies and cinamon swirl bread are the best, followed closely by pumkin and apple pie, and of course, Chocolate and milkshakes and ice cream and egg nog....
