Waverly Jumbles

Yield about 4 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons rose water
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a medium mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and rose water, beating well.

  2. Sift together flour and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture, stirring until well blended. Chill dough at least 1 hour.

  3. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; roll each ball into an 8- inch rope. Shape each rope into a coil, and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool completely on wire racks.
