Twin Cities Live - Pinwheel Cookies

This year, Twin Cities Live has been pairing their 12 days of Cookies recipes with a flavor of Bridgeman's Ice Cream. We have been having a great time watching all these delicious cookies get made.  Day one was a Pinwheel Cookie by "Something Sweet by Maddie Lu".  She paired this tasty cookie with our Peppermint Krisp Ice Cream. 

Bridgeman's Peppermint Krisp Ice Cream

Pinwheel Cookies


3 cups AP flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter room temp
1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs room temp
2 tsp vanilla
Red gel food coloring
Green gel food coloring
Holiday sprinkles
Bowl of water

Directions:
Sift together the AP flour, baking powder and salt and set aside
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs in one at a time. Add vanilla. Add the dries and mix until combined split dough in half and die each ball a color.

Flour your table and roll out first ball of dough making sure it doesn’t stick to the table.
Set aside then roll out second ball of dough. Using your fingers, spread water onto the first rolled out batch of dough and carefully place the second batch on top.
Using a knife, trim the edges so they match.  Water down the top of the dough again and begin rolling it into a log.  Be sure to be gentle as the dough is fragile.
Using the water again, cover the log and roll it into the sprinkles.
Put the log into the cooler for one hour.
Cut into 1/4 inch thick disks
Bake at 275 degrees for about 14 minutes or until they don’t look doughy anymore
