Method

Sieve flour, baking powder & salt together.

Cream butter & powdered sugar till light & fluffy.

Add the flour, vanilla & milk. Mix gently to make a stiff dough.

Divide the mixture into two parts and blend cocoa powder in one.

Thinly roll out both the halves 1/8″ thick into equal sized pieces.

Place the chocolate piece on top of the white one. Roll the two tightly together as for Swiss rolls and allow to stand in a cool place for 20-30 minutes.

Cut into 1/4″ thick slices and place on a well greased baking tray.

Bake at 180° for about 10-15 minutes.

Your Pinwheel Cookies are ready to be cooled and relished.
