300 gm butter
2 egg yolk
3 cup flour
6 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup powdered sugar
2 pieces cooking chocolate
3 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon edible food color
In a big bowl combine the butter, sugar powder and egg yolks. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
In another bowl dust the flour and baking powder and add the milk and vanilla essence to this dry mixture. Mix till it all combines. Then mix in the wet mixture slowly that is in the other bowl.
Knead dough lightly by hand and divide into two balls. Add the different food coloring to half of the dough. Now divide half the dough into quarter so as there are two same colored balls and two plain or another color balls.
Take two different colored balls. Spread out waxed paper on counter, about 17 inches long. Then put one colored dough on bottom and the other color dough on top of the waxed paper. Smash down gently and carefully roll out the two evenly to about 9×13 inches long (leaving extra wax paper on all edges).
Now take out the wax paper from in between and roll the dough up again on the wax paper, into a 13 inch long log so that the wax paper is now not in between the two colors but outside. Take care not to roll in the wax paper.
Wrap the wax paper around the log. Carefully twist the ends of the wax paper to secure. Repeat this process for the other two balls to make a second log. Chill the dough for at least an hour, or up to a day.
Once hard slice with a sharp knife into 1/4 inch rounds and bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes or so.
Do not brown them! Pinwheels should just start to get golden. Let them firm up for a few minutes before removing from baking sheet.
