filled with jam and a fun cookie to celebrate Spring.
It’s Spring, but the calendar says it’s still cold, blustery and rainy. What better way to cheer up than with pinwheels cookies.
The kids enjoy seeing the spinning pinwheels in the gentle spring breeze so we made paper pinwheels for decorations and a batch of pinwheel cookies.
One of the great things about baking and cooking is that you can make a recipe to fit your own special theme or holiday and this adorable pinwheel cookie can be for any occasion.
I’m thinking this would be terrific for baby showers – and many other fun gatherings as well.
I will be honest since I’m all about quick and easy recipes, making each cookie shape was a little slow going.
Don’t get me wrong, it was very easy but my fingers seemed to get in my own way. Although, after all was done I can say it wasn’t too bad since I had the entire batch of cookies made in an hour, then the clean up.
This recipe is from BHG.Com Christmas Cookies 2014 issue - it yields approximately 36 cookies.
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar (I used Monkfruit)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/8 tsp. salt

- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 3/4 cups AP flour
- 1/2 cup fruit preserves (use your favorite)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tsp. fresh squeezed orange juice (or use milk)
