Holiday Pinwheel Cookies

Holiday Pinwheel Cookies

When I was working on my cookbook Marbled, Swirled, and Layered, I had to make some tough choices about which recipes to keep and which to let go. The cookie chapter was pretty overloaded as it was, and some recipes ended up falling by the wayside.

Red and white pinwheel cookies were one of them. And that’s too bad because they are a classic holiday cookie that everyone should learn to make.

But today is your lucky day! I’m resurrecting the recipe and sharing it with you.

Pfeffernüsse Spice Cookies

Pfeffernüsse Spice Cookies

Years ago, I used to host an annual holiday cookie swap at a local nonprofit community center in San Francisco. Friends and members of the community would gather together, bearing large batches of homemade cookies. Everyone would walk around, sampling cookies and taking a few of the ones we loved.

Each person left with a tin of assorted cookies, along with a slight sugar buzz.

It was a marvelous way to meet new people in the neighborhood, as well as learn about new cookies that I wasn’t familiar with. And that’s exactly how I was introduced to the magical Pfeffernusse.

7 Easy Breakfast Recipes for Thanksgiving Morning

Holiday Breakfasts

We spend so much time planning Thanksgiving dinner that breakfast is often neglected. A good breakfast, though, is part of a winning strategy.

Starving yourself for turkey won’t help—especially if you’re charged with all the cooking. No one want to pass out face first in their gravy.
