 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           all-purpose flour
    2      tablespoons   sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/3  cup           vegetable shortening
    3      ounces        cream cheese
    2      teaspoons     milk
      1/4  cup           peanut butter
    3      tablespoons   apple butter
 
      1. In a small mixing bowl, sift the flour with sugar and salt. Add
 shortening, cream cheese and milk. Mix on lowest speed of an electric mixer
 until dough begins to form well. Shape into a ball.
      2. Roll out on floured surface to a 20 x 8 inch rectangle. Cut in half to
 make two 10 x 8-inch rectangles.
      3. Spread one half with peanut butter (try crunchy peanut butter if you
 wish); top with the apple butter. Place the second half of dough on top of
 first. Brush with milk and sprinkle with a little bit of granulated sugar.
      4. Cut into strips 5 x 1/2 inches. Gently twist twice. Place on well-
 greased cookie sheets and bake in preheated 400-degree oven for 7-10 minutes
 or until light golden brown. Do not overbake. Serve warm or at room
 temperature.
 
 Makes 30 twists.
