Love these addictive cookies! They have been added to our Christmas cookie-baking list!
Amazing, alot of work but when u make alot of it ahead and freeze it its pretty nice just b4 the guests arrive by 30 min. Take the log out cut it in slices and bake :) perfectly nice. My first log wasn't a real success cause when I roll it I kept rolling alot till the chocolate and the vanilla dough mixed Haha it was fun looking cookies at the end but the 2nd log which I had frozen for a month was just perfect.
Plan ahead!! This cookie is delicious, so cute but ALOT of work. Worth rolling and freezing ahead then baking as needed.
Delicious cookies, fun and not particularly hard to make. With a little sculpting, you can also make shapes other than spirals-- for Halloween we made skulls. This week, a little red food coloring in the vanilla dough and we are ready for Valentine's day!
gmauritz, the directions call for bittersweet chocolate not unsweetened-- there's your problem, right there.
It was going great until I added the melted chocolate. The chocolate dough cooled hardened into a brittle, unrollable mass. I used 3 oz Baker's brand Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Squares. Next time I'll use cocoa instead of chocolate.
One innovation that DID work - I added 3 oz creamy peanut butter to the plain dough. Resulting flavor combination was good even if the cookies were not gift-worthy in appearance.
Great cookies, but roll them thinner if you want more turns in the pinwheel pattern.
good cookies, but time consuming to make. it's worth it in the end because they turn out pretty cute.
These cookies are absolutely fabulous, and have a very unique and fun look, which makes them great as gifts!
