California’s professional firefighters showed off their considerable cooking talents in a third annual “milk and cookies” recipe contest — and the winners’ cookie recipes are now available to all cooks in the 2006 Milk and Cookies Calendar.

The calendar is published by the California Milk Advisory Board, which organizes the recipe contests.

All proceeds benefit the California Firefighters Memorial and families of fallen firefighters.

Grandma Bert’s whirlygigs

cup butter, softened

cup sugar

cup brown sugar

cup peanut butter

1 egg

11/4 cups flour

teaspoon baking soda

teaspoon salt

6-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips

Cream together butter, sugars and peanut butter in medium bowl. Add egg and beat until fluffy. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.

Roll dough into an oval shape about 1/4-inch thick on sheet of wax paper; set aside.

Melt chocolate chips slowly in top of double boiler; cool slightly and spread thinly over dough with spatula.

Starting with long end, roll up dough and wrap tightly in plastic wrap; chill for several hours or freeze until ready to bake. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice dough 1/4-inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool on wire racks. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

The 2006 Milk & Cookies Calendar is available for $15. For information on buying the calendar online, visit www.memorial.cpf.org.

The calendar is also available by sending a check or money order payable to California Fire Foundation to: Milk & Cookies Calendar, California Fire Foundation, 1780 Creekside Oaks, Sacramento, CA 95833.
