A cookie filled with strawberry and apricot jam, shaped like a pinwheel, is a festive cookie to celebrate Spring.
Pinwheel Cookies Filled with Jam
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 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.
Cut out squares using a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Cut a 1 inch slit on each corner of the square (see photo). Scoop 1 level teaspoon of jam into the center of each square. Fold over every other tip to the center, pressing the tips gently to seal, to make pinwheel shape.
