Holiday Pinwheels


I made these over Thanksgiving weekend and they were fun to do but a little tricky.  If you cut the dough log in half and work with half  at a time, it’s much easier.  Keep the other half in the fridge until you are ready for it.  You will also need to use LOTS of colored sugar ~ I didn’t use enough and it shows.  Change the sugar colors for different holidays.  This is obviously a Pillsbury recipe, LOL.


Holiday Pinwheels

1 roll Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/2 cup flour
3 tbsp red sugar
3 tbsp green sugar

Remove cookie dough from wrapper and cut in half crosswise.

Sprinkly 1/4 cup of flour on your work surface and roll out half into 12×7 rectangle. Repeat with remaining half of dough and 1/4 cup flour.

Sprinkle 1 rectangle evenly with red sugar and sprinkle other half evenly with green sugar.

Starting with short side of each rectangle, roll up jellyroll fashion. Wrap rolls in wax paper and refrigerate for at least 1 hour for easier handling.

Heat oven to 350º and cut each roll into 16 slices. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

Makes 32 cookies.


Happy Cooking!
