How to Make Rainbow Pinwheel Cookies


  • 1Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
  • 2For rainbow pinwheels, divide dough evenly into four bowls and color each with a different color (pink, green, blue, purple). Roll each color dough into 14 grape-sized balls.
  • 3Before the next step, I found it easy to refrigerate the balls before rolling them together.
  • 4Combine a ball of each color and quickly roll dough into a larger ball. Then roll that ball between your hands and the counter or cutting board until you have a snake-like figure about 6-inches long.
  • 5Starting from one end, roll the dough into a coil, twisting as you go. Put sprinkles on top and bake for 10-11 minutes or until done.
