Wild Cherry peanut Butter Swirls

Listen now my dear friends. We are now ready to arrange a recipe relay. You send in your best recipe to me at It can be both baking and quick dessert recipes. A selection of entries will be published in our recipe leaflet magazine. "Sweet Cuppin Cakes Baking and Quick Desserts" Every Wednesday as long as the recipes keep coming, our selection will be posted here on this blog, starting January 20, 2010. All published contributions are rewarded with a nice little gift of yet unknown nature. E-mail me! Email will contain the recipe, a photo and a short text about why it is so good, and your name, age and address. Do you have a blog even send me a link to that. To get you started I will share a recipe I tried yesterday for;

Melt morsels over low heat and then spread on 2 rectangles of dough or one large rectangle depending on cookie size ( I used one large rectangle)
Roll up lengthwise using parchment paper for assistance.This is a little tricky but worth it!! Chill no longer than 20 minutes.
