Godiva Pinwheel Cookies

Godiva cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter (softened)

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 tbs. Vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1/3 cups cocoa

140g Chocolate of your choice (melted & cooled), suggest Godiva Milk Chocolate

Food Coloring of your choice

Optional: white decorating sugar 

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. At a reduced speed add flour mixture. Beat until well mixed.

Divide dough into 2 equal parts and place in separate bowls. Add melted chocolate mixture and cocoa to one and mix well. Add 2-3 drops food coloring to the other and mix well. Shape each piece of dough into 4 x 5-inch rectangles; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.

Roll out chocolate dough between two sheets of lightly floured wax paper to 7 x 12-inch rectangle. Repeat with coloured dough. Place coloured dough on top of chocolate dough. Gently press the two together. Roll up, jellyroll fashion, starting with 12-inch side; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours).

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut log into ¼-inch slices with sharp knife and place 1” apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse white decorating sugar if desired. Bake for 7-9 minutes, let cool on pan for about 1 minute then remove and place on a rack to cool completely. For best results, keep dough chilled until ready to slice and bake.

2-3 Dozen Cookies
