  • In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients and add to the mixer bowl. Mix well.
  • Split the dough in half.
  • Return half of the dough back to the mixer and add in the peppermint extract and a small dot of green food color gel. Mix well.
  • Wrap each disc of dough in plastic separately and chill for half an hour.
  • Roll each dough into long rectangles. Keep them the same size and about 6 inches wide by about 18 inches long. Roughly.
  • Stack the doughs together and then roll. I use a bench scraper to help lift the dough.
  • Wrap in plastic and chill for an hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  • Unwrap the dough and slice about ½ inch thick. Place each pinwheel on the cookie sheet. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, or until done.
