How to Make It
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add corn syrup and sugar, beating until smooth. Combine remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, stirring well; gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well.
Shape dough into two rolls, 2 inches in diameter; wrap in waxed paper, and chill.
