Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaMaysCakes from WOW. I'm from the UK and i'm a keen baker but cookies always seem to be my downfall. I saw these and thought I'd give them a try. I left out the sugared edge because I wanted to keep it really simple and all I can say is this is the best recipe ever. My cookies came out wonderful, they tasted amazing and it was so simple. What is great is that you can make them the day before then just cook them when you need them the next day. Great for a pudding if eaten warm! I will be definitely be making these over and over again for my friends and family!! Thank you Wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kathyacorey from Pinwheels are fun and always get WoW'S! The trick to the fantastic finish is in the construction of each of the layers. Taking extra time to place your different layers side-by-side to make sure the layers are uniform, then placing the layers a little off-set before rolling gives a great twirled look. Cleaning the knife between each cut and using a serrated blade with a single swipe, allows the cookies to be re-shaped into the round and keep the separation of colors more definite. For a great personal creation, consider adding a few drops of flavored nut oil or extract to one of the halves. Paste color also makes the dough easy to color for your custom look. I have even successfully divided my dough into three parts, rolled each part a little thinner, and after off-setting slightly, gotten a great roll to slice and bake. With colored dough, the baking time has to be more watchful, as over baking makes the browning cookies less attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neax87 from Wonderful The biscuits had a lovely texture and crunch when I was finished making these (after cooling on a tray and etc) would definitely make them again.. I experimented and made Chocolate Raspberry ones, chocolate swirl, and a raspberry swirl (raspberry essence/wilton no-taste red paste food colouring).
