Everyone loves my Christmas Sugar Cookies so much that I decided to make these pinwheel cookies with that same dough. The dough is fast, flavorful and sooo delicious. It makes these cookies so simple.

RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM

Christmas cookies are my jam! I love how fun they are and honestly just about everyone I know is happy to receive them so I can make a ton for gifts!

I have 20 cookie sheets just for the occasion. LOL. Okay, truth be told I was going to start a home bakery business at one time and started purchasing supplies. The cookie sheets came in handy though, so I kept them. Although I prefer cooking over baking these days, I love love love cookie making. It is cathartic. I love to make cookies and package them up into adorable baskets, boxes or gift bags and surprise those people in my life who have touched my life in some way. It could be anyone from the bank teller that is especially patient with me when I am so frazzled or my landscaper or family in Florida. I love gifting sweets.

My cut out cookies are the number one sweet that we gift. So, I make these cookies with the same cookie dough. Smart, huh?

These Christmas Pinwheel Sugar Cookies are so fun and festive. Everyone is going to love them.

HELPFUL TIPS TO MAKE CHRISTMAS PINWHEEL SUGAR COOKIES:

  • Use a really tasty dough! You can use store bought, but our Christmas sugar cookie dough is so easy and tastes amazing, so you don't have to!
  • Gel food coloring is best, but if you can not find it regular food coloring will work.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE CHRISTMAS PINWHEEL SUGAR COOKIES:

  • Red gel coloring - gel coloring is so much easier to work with. Liquids can change the consistency of the recipe you are working on,
  • Christmas Nonpareils - red, white and green round sugar sprinkles that add the perfect touch to these cookies.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies
SERVES 24

Christmas sugar cookie dough (click for recipe)
red food coloring (gel is best)
Christmas nonpareil sprinkles

Separate prepared dough into 2 halves. Add red food coloring to one half. Add 1/2 of your cookie dough to a stand mixer and add red food coloring until your mixture reaches your desired color. You can also knead food coloring into dough until completely combined if you do not have a stand mixer.

Place red cookie dough on parchment paper. Roll red cookie dough to about 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Set aside.

Place plain cookie dough on a sheet of parchment paper (or wax paper). Roll plain cookie dough out to about 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Stack cookie dough sheets on top of one another with the parchment on the outside. Remove the top parchment and roll over the dough gently with a rolling pin (to help the 2 doughs become one). Begin on one end and roll the cookie dough into a log (removing the remaining paper as you go). If dough is too soft to work with, refrigerate for 30 minutes and then try again.

Once dough is formed into a log, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour . Meanwhile: pour sprinkles into a cookie sheet. Unwrap dough and roll into sprinkles. Rewrap and refrigerate 3 hours to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Slice cookies and place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake according to your sugar cookie directions or until the cookies feel set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!

  11. I made these last night using your sugar cookie recipe. Delicious! The cookies were easier to make than I thought they would be. In fact, I made two logs, red/white and green/white. I will be making cut outs with your sugar cookie recipe. Thank you!

  12. Thanks for your dough recipe and the pinwheel version. I am making them for a children's Christmas party at our church. They look like Christmas magic so I thought they'd be perfect. I made them last year too.

  13. Mine rounded out in the oven so the sprinkles didn't show since there were no sides to the cookies!

  14. My cookies rounded out, without a side edge to them, so the sprinkles don't show???

  15. Your original sugar cookie recipe calls for baking at 375, but these pinwheels say 350. If I'm using your sugar cookie recipe, which should I follow? Should I follow that time on your original sugar cookie recipe as well?
