White Chocolate & Ginger Pinwheels

Cecelia Huddleston


I love this Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie Mix. My husband who isn't a big fan of gingerbread even loves the mild ginger flavor! After making these pinwheels one year for Christmas using the Gingerbread Cookie Mix and a roll of Sugar Cookie Dough, I decided to make my own dough for the Sugar Cookie & my husband really liked them.

How to Make White Chocolate & Ginger Pinwheels

  • 2In microwave safe bowl, melt chips with shortening, stirring at 15 second intervals until mixture is melted. Add butter, vanilla extract and half & half. Beat in flour. Chill dough for 1 hour.
  • 3On a cookie sheet, between 2 sheets of waxed paper, roll out the white chocolate dough to form a 15x10-inch rectangle. Freeze for 5 minutes.
