Holiday Pinwheel Cookies

Holiday Pinwheel Cookies

I saw loads of perfect pinwheel cookies on Pinterest last year. Red and green layers in gorgeous spirals…so festive. As Christmas grew near, I knew I wanted to tackle this recipe. I turned to dessert guru, Gale Gand, and tweaked her vanilla and chocolate pinwheels into a holiday version. Pretty nice, eh? And the cool part is that you can store rolls of these in your freezer to slice and bake as the need arises. Welcome to Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting today, Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.
