Ingredients

¾ cup butter, unsalted
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
cup peanut butter
natural and creamy
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
*

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper, or baking mat, or coat with cooking spray.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy, about 5 minutes.

Add egg. Beat until combined. Sift flour over butter mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.

Divide the dough in half. Mix peanut butter and cocoa powder into 1 half.

Wrap up two doughs separately with two pieces of plastic wraps.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to 1 hour, or until firm.

Roll halves between parchment paper to form 8 by 12-inch rectangles.

Remove the parchment paper from the top of rectangles. Turn the plain rectangle onto peanut-cocoa rectangle.

Remove the other layer of parchment paper from top.

Starting at the long end, roll up like a Swiss roll. Wrap in plastic paper. Freeze for 1 hour.

Remove the plastic wrap. Trim the ends to make a smooth cut.

Cut into ¼ inch thick rounds. Place on prepared baking sheets.

Bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly golden.

Let cookies cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve and enjoy.

Note: The cookies can be kept in an air-tight container for a few days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

These pinwheels were super buttery and flakey. The buttery dough did require a good amount of chilling time and a quick rolling. The result was very rewarding, the cookies were packed with peanut butter flavor, and was melting in the mouth, but not super sweet.

These are great treats at any occasion.
