Krackle & Peppermint Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies

Krackle & Peppermint Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies

I had a Christmas cookies craving last night. I made Krackle Cookies and Peppermint Chocolate Pinwheels. I’ve made the krackle cookies since I was a kid. The pinwheels were from a recipe I spotted on Alton Brown’s Good Eats show. The pinwheels are a sugar base with chocolate and peppermint added to 1/2 the dough and then rolled together. Greg thought they were ok. Sugar cookies aren’t are favorites.

This morning they sure are tasty with a cup of coffee. A few shots of the cookies above and below. I actually tried a new version of a krackle cookie with espresso: (she calls them snowcaps). The recipe for the chocolate pinwheel cookies can be found on Watch The Cookie Clause video to learn all about sugar cookies from Alton and different variations that can be made with the dough.

  1. I made your pumpkin cookie recipe yesterday for a gift. They turned out well: rewardingly pumpkin-y. I made them tiny (1 tsp of batter each) and was rotating cookie sheets in and out of the oven for hours. I felt like I was in a cookie factory.
