Directions

In a large bowl, combine margarine, sugar, egg, milk, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.

Add flour mixture to margarine mixture; mix well.

Very pretty, not too sweet and just the right touch of peppermint.

There is nothing more popular than Christmas cookies when Christmas comes. From last week on, it has been Christmas cookies week. This peppermint pinwheel cookies were one of them, the swirl of pink and white looked absolutely beautiful, and they were buttery, flakey, not super sweet and delicious. We made the pink sugar by adding 2 drops of red food coloring into about 1/4 cup sugar, and it worked perfectly well. Will be one of the Christmas cookies packed in the gift box.
