Basic Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Like so many others, I was enticed by the swirling design of these cookies. It seemed suspicious that the only source of moisture in them was the butter, but I went ahead and made them anyway. What a fool I was. While rolling out the dough like it says in the second step I realized that the loose flour and butter particulates could not accrete together without some kind of liquid, at which point I added some oil to the portions. Then it resembeled real cookie dough and not some shortbread dough. If you really want to use this recipe I recommend adding oil after you separate the dough and add the cocoa powder. Add just enough oil to make it all stick together and roll out easily. After I did that they turned out great.
This recipe is horrible. When I tried this recipe I figured out that it did not work out at all. It also takes way longer than it said it would. I spent at least two and a half hours making it. The only good part is my family loved eating the dough raw.
There must be an error in the amount of flour! WAY too much flour. Crumbly disaster even after adding more butter. Wasted ingredients and time.
The dough was so flaky it was impossible to roll. It just kept breaking off in pieces. I ended up layering the two flavors and then cutting it with cookie cutters. Very tasty, but disappointing.
Wonderful recipe!It was fun to make!I personally would use less sugar...It took me little bit more then 10-12 min to bake,but we all have different ovens...Cookies came out tasty and beautiful!They were hit in my family:)
Great recipe and result. I thought the dough was a little wet so I added a 1/4 cup extra of flour. Will make again
Never have I baked such an awful cookie recipe, the dough does not hold and crumbles to the touch. I couldn't roll the chocolate portion it crumbled so much! When came the time to roll all of it, I found that the best thing to do was TO KEEP THE WAX PAPER ON! that way I could roll it like a sushi without it breaking apart. Cutting into cookies after 2 hours in the fridge wasn't so bad... but a lot of food was yet again wasted. At least the tasteis good! But I wouldn't bake these cookies even with that.
