I spent this weekend baking loads of holiday goodies, and let me tell you I’m pretty proud of myself! I tried mostly new recipes (with some old classics), so seeing them turn out so well was really great 🙂  I saw this recipe on pinterest and thought that I could adapt it into a Christmas cookie variation, and I think it worked really well!  Rather than dividing the dough into four or five different bowls and colors, I split it in two — red and green.

I found after the first couple of cookies I tried that they were a little too warm/runny, so I stuck the trays in the freezer for a quick chill and set-up.  That helped remarkably. I suggest it.

Next, since I didn’t have four or five different colors I picked two balls of red and two balls of green to form the larger ball.pinwheel christmas cookies

I rolled that out and spun it into a spiral like the recipe ordered, and rolled the edges in sprinkles.

After baking for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, they cooled and are delicious!  They did spread out quite a bit, so I recommend leaving plenty of space.  I’m not enough of a baking expert to know how to rectify that, but I’m sure there’s probably a way.
