A favorite of friends and family!!
I love these cookies! I made a similar cookie when I was growing up, so making this recipe was quite nostalgic for me. They tasted just as great and were just as fun to make (and to eat!). THese cookies look so pretty on a cookie tray. THey do take some time to make, but I think they are worth it.
I've made these cookies for the last eight years. My husband and children love them. Each year I have fine tuned how I prepare them----rolling them and cutting them exactly 1/4" as directed. I'm always happy to share the recipe.
This is the very first pinwheel cookie I have ever made. I followed the recipe right to the T. Wow! I could not believe I actually made these beautiful cookies! Mine turned out almost as pretty as the picture and they were so good! Thank you Paulette. You have me hooked on pinwheels now. I'm searching the web for different fillings. Love these!

To begin, yes, these cookies taste good. However, they are a PAIN to make. The recipe doesn't indicate how sticky the dough will be (even after ample chilling) and how much flour you will have to knead into it. And after that, the dough will still be very fragile and will rip/tear easily. I would still make these again, but next time, I'll be more prepared for how much work it takes to make these.
Mine never look as perfectly round and pretty as the TOH picture, but they are fantastic and the first to disappear from a cookie tray!
just awful. the filling was so runny it got over the dough and made it look dirty. thought it was a typo. choc was all over the cookies. not worth making
These cookies are a bit messy to make, but absolutely worth the effort! The chocolate-orange flavor comes through so clearly in this soft, pretty cookie. Be warned: guests love them, and they disappear fast off of the cookie tray!
This is one of my families all time favorites. I have been making these since they first appeared in the Taste of Home magazine. Delicious!
