Amazing! These spiced Swiss roll cookie slices are to die for! Hope you like them! (Pictures are posted to help you understand)

This recipe is kinda un-ordinary. You see it’s weird in a sense that it’s AWESOME!! If you love cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar combined, you will love these cookies!

This recipe is very complicated. Well… was. The first time I made this I wanted it to be a challenge. That didn’t work. It got so hard that it ended up not working. After many tries, (2) I finally made a simple version of my original recipe!

Origin of this recipe: it was intended to be a Swedish dessert roll. That didn’t work. I decided to try it again and slice it before I baked it! Therefore, cookies!


  1. 1 stick butter (softened)
  2. 1/2 cup shortening (I use crisco)
  3. 2 1/4 cup flour
  4. 1/2 cup sugar
  5. 1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  6. 1 egg
  7. 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  8. 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  10. 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  11. 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Beat butter and shortening

  2. Add 1 1/8 cup flour, both sugars, egg, spices, baking soda, and vanilla

  3. Beat well

  4. Add remaining flour (1 1/8 cup)

  5. Roll dough into a 7 x2 in roll

  6. Rap your roll with tin foil or press and seal

  7. Refrigerate for 5-24 hours (I only did 4)

  8. Slice the roll into thick cookie slices

  9. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes

  10. Cool on a wire rack and…

  11. Enjoy!

  12. Notes: refrigerating is very important in this recipe! Do not skip it! When cutting your Swiss roll into cookie slices, use a sharp knife and a sawing motion. (Back and forth). If at first your mixture won’t hold together, add 1 tablespoon of milk!

  13. Optional additions: add sliced almond slices. Top with jelly. Eat raw (don’t add egg). Add canned mandarin oranges. Add nuts of your choice.
