1. Great recipe, held its shape perfectly! Always a plus when recipes like yours give metric measurements. I colored the vanilla dough orange and the chocolate dough black and rolled the logs in candy sugar for some easy Halloween cookies.

  2. Hi do u use plain or self-raising flour for this recipe please

    1. Author

      Hi Clare,
      I just use all-purpose flour for this recipe.

  3. What type of sugar do you use?

    1. Author

      Hi Anon,
      Regular granulated sugar.

      1. What flour do u use

      2. Author

        Hi, just plain or what’s called all-purpose flour here.

  4. Just made these today, they came out great, my 3 year old loves them! This is my first time not just making pinwheel cookies, but even eating them! So I had no idea what the end result would be, but they were delicious! Love the idea that I have another roll sitting in the freezer ready to be popped into the oven whenever the first set runs out! Thanks for a great recipe!

      Hi and thank you!

  6. Was wondering what the diameter of each biased cookie is. I am making a cookie tray for an occasion and would like to add this cookie to the tray and thought they would look cute if they were small. Should I make foUr logs weather than two logs? Thank you

      Hi Angela,
      The cookies are about two inches in diameter. You can make mini pinwheels if you roll out the dough to narrower rectangles.

  7. Would it work if I split the dough into 3 and had 3 different coloured layers? For example make one chocolate one plain and one strawberry? Would this effect the recipe?

    1. Author

      Hi Jake,
      That sounds great and it’s certainly worth a try. Just have the texture of all three doughs be firm so they’re easy to roll.

  8. Made this recipe twice and it’s fun start to finish!
    Delicious too.
    I just don’t know how your dough look perfect consistency after rolling because mine seem a little too wet, tearing while I’m rolling.
    Also vanilla dough expand more than chocolate dough after baking but your look even. Do you roll the vanilla dough thinner?

      Hi Samster,
      If the weather over there is on the warm and humid side making your dough sticky, try mixing a couple more tablespoons of flour and make sure to chill the dough before rolling it out. As for the vanilla dough, I always try to roll both types of dough in the same thickness, so sometimes, if the vanilla portion is slightly more than the chocolate, I will roll it out a bit more.

  9. Ive tried making the chocolate swirl part but mine has just turned to liquid?

    1. Author

      Hi Kacey,
      Not sure what happened there. Might you have used melted chocolate instead of cocoa? When you mix unsweetened cocoa powder with the melted butter and milk, the mixture should clump and have a dough-like texture.

  10. Hello,

    Do you use salted or unsalted butter? Thanks!

    1. Author

      Hi Alyssa,
      You can use either one for this recipe.

  11. Hi, I was wondering about the yield of this recipe?

    1. Author

      Hi, depending on how thick your cookies are, at least three dozen cookies.

  12. Mine are in the oven baking as I type = ) we are having our first ever ‘bake off’ at work so i’m hoping these impress the judges. Thanks for the easy to follow recipe.

  13. Thanks a lot! I’ll make these cookies this week!

  14. Hi
    How many cookies will there be made?

    1. Author

      Hi Ira,
      It depends on how thick you slice the cookies, about 3 dozen.

  15. hi,ive made this using your recipe and it was lovely,my favourite cookie. however i have a question,i want to make again and im out of butter just margerine.id i substitute butter dor margerine will it affect the final taste as i love the taste i got the last time and cant wait till i buy butter to try again.

    1. Author

      Hi, yes, you can use margarine as a substitute.

  16. Hiya,
    I don’t have a mixer of any sorts so I used my hands and they turned out great! I just had to work the dough in a bit more than usual. I also refrigerated the dough before I rolled it out and that helped. I love this recipe because I’m only 13 but still found it nice and easy! = )

      Hi Danica,
      That’s great! Thanks for the note.

      1. Hi there..i tried your recipe..it was awesome..pinwheels had always been a challenge for me..but u made it easy for me..thanks..i love ur site..

      2. Author

        Glad to know and thanks for the feedback, Sumaira!

  17. These came out beautifully!

    Both of the doughs were pretty soft (especially the chocolate one), so I chilled everything between each step & rolled the half balls out between 2 sheets of waxed paper.

    Fairly labor intensive, but I took my time between stages & that worked fine. Now I’ve got 30 impressive looking cookies & another roll in the freezer to slice & bake whenever I need them.

    Many thanks!

  18. I want to try this cookies, can i replace egg with something else? As we don’t eat egg, thanks

    1. Author

      Hi Sharma,
      You can try omitting the egg yolks, but I haven’t tried doing that, so I’m not so sure how that would turn out.

  19. Hello…first time here.

    These cookies drew me in because I have yet to make this variety of pinwheel.
    I’m willing to give your recipe a try. I already have a few flavour ideas to explore with.

    I do however have an important question? Do you measure your flour as spoon and level or scoop in and level. This particular matter seems to usually make or break most recipes I’ve tried in the past.
    BTW, I’m the spoon and level kind of baker ;o)

    Lovely web site…looking forward to have time to look around some more.

    Happy holidays,

    1. Author

      Hi Claudia,
      I measure flour by spooning the flour into the cup and leveling. I don’t dip the measuring cup and scoop out the flour.
      Thanks for the note and happy holidays to you too!

  20. I just made these for my family’s Christmas dinner, and they were a huge hit! Thank you so much = )

      Hi Ruth,
      Thanks for the feedback! Hope you enjoyed making them.

  22. These came out so delicious! I am not a confident cook/baker and thought there was no way mine would come out looking like the pictures, but to my surprise they did!! I will be making these for all the staff at my son’s preschool. Thank you!!

      Hi Aimee,
      I appreciate the feedback!

  23. Hi! =) Just wanted to THANK YOU for this amazing recipe! I’ve done these cookies twice already and everyone loves them! You have done an amazing job with explaining everything – even for a non-native English speaker (I’m Croatian). So, THANK YOU! I’ll be back, for sure, to re-do these and even try the ”pink version”!
    Have an amazing day,

      Hi Loralee,
      Thanks for the awesome idea!

  26. Hi,
    I was wondering if I want to add peanut butter to the cookie, how should I adjust the recipe?
    Looking forward to trying the recipe! It looks so awesome! <3
    Thank you~

    1. Author

      Hi Bee,
      I haven’t tried adding peanut butter to the recipe. If I get a chance, I’ll try to make a batch with peanut butter and let you know how it turns out.

  27. Hi! How far ahead of an event can I bake these without compromising taste?
    Thanks ahead = )

    1. Author

      Hi Loulwa,
      Once you have the cookie dough rolled into pinwheel logs, you can freeze them up to weeks ahead of time. Then bake the cookies just when you need them.

      1. Thanks so much for replying. I ended up having lots of fun with making the cookies with different shapes and colours =) I froze the cookies since monday and baked them today (friday) and i put them in my daughter’s birthday giveaway bags for her friends to take home. I hope they taste fine by then! =) I would have shared pics if this form let me!

        Thanks again. Great recipe!
