Christmas Pinwheel Cookies

I can hardly stand it, there are a few presents under our Christmas Tree and MaMa says I can't open them yet! Then she tries to cheer me up by offering me one of these festive Christmas Pinwheel Cookies. I gladly accept and run off a happy camper!

Ingredients for Christmas Pinwheel Cookies:

1/2 c butter, softened
2 c Joseph's Grainery Whole Grain Cookie Mix Base
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp lemon juice
red and greed food coloring

Directions: In the bowl of your mixer combine the butter, cookie mix and sugar until they resemble fine crumbs. Add the egg, vanilla, milk, lemon juice and mix on low speed for about a minute.

Divide the dough into 2 halves. Color one half red and the other half green. On a well floured surface roll out both portions until the are about 1/4 inch thick. Place one color on top of the other and roll into a pinwheel. Place the log in the fridge for 2 hours to chill.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take the dough out of the fridge and slice off cookies that are 1/2 inch thick. Place them on a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 8 minutes.
