Pinwheel Cookies I


These cookies are mixed, wrapped in wax paper, chilled, sliced and then baked. My grandmother and my mother both made these and now I make them for my family.

3 dozen


  • 1 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened chocolate


  1. Combine butter and sugar and egg yolk. Add dry ingredients and milk alternately.

  2. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. Melt chocolate over low heat and add to one half of the dough.

  3. Use a rolling pin and roll each half into a rectangle. Put the chocolate rectangle on top of the vanilla one. Roll up like a jelly roll in wax paper.

  4. Chill several hours, best if chilled overnight.

  5. Slice them and bake at 400 degrees (200 degrees C) for about 5 minutes.
