Rainbow Pinwheel Cookie recipe

Today, I came across the coolest biscuit recipe ever. I was looking for some inspiration for my daughter's 11th birthday party. She is into "Peace & Love" big time. These rainbow pinwheel biscuits should be a big hit.

Here is the recipe for RAINBOW PINWHEEL COOKIES

3/4 cup butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
assorted colors of paste food coloring
24 lollipop sticks

1.) In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.

2.) In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths.

3.) Tint each with a different food color.

4.) Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

5.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

6.) Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 orange ball together to make 1 large ball.

7.) Shape into a 12 inch long roll (like a snake), starting at one end, coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie.

8.) Roll edges of the cookie in sprinkles

9.) Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Carefully insert lollipop sticks into bottoms of cookies.

10.) Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.
