Classic Pinwheel Cookies

Pinwheel Cookie Cover

These cookies are one of D’s favorites!  The recipe came from his mom – I don’t know where she got it.  I do know she’s made them for at least a couple decades.

These cookies embody something I LOVE about my mother-in-law.  She can take very little and turn it into something just delightful.  Like these cookies – just a few simple ingredients to make these delicious little treats!

Added bonus?  I almost always have the ingredients on hand.

D’s mom is an artist so her versions are always perfect.  I am not as fastidious about the layer thickness or rolling so mine tend to be less “perfect.”  Either way they are SOO good.  They also are a perfect cookie because even when slightly over-done they are GREAT.

Just a quick note, these aren’t overly sweet cookies.  We think that’s part of their appeal…

The last time we made them it was for “E” is for Emotions week at daycare.  We use some of the doughs to make these cute “emotional” cookies:)
