Pinwheel Cookies

I was watching a nature program with my children the other day, thinking about how odd-looking Australian animals are, when it struck me ... Ahem, as if giraffes and zebra and rhinos aren't also a little crazy looking?! Just because we grew up with them - obviously not literally! - in our back yards, they seem normal and right. Kangaroos and duck-billed platypus(ses??) , on the other hand... not so normal. No offense intended!

Ok, there's really no point to that little share, except that these biscuits make me think of zebra crossings, and zebra crossings make me think about zebras, and well, you can figure out the rest....

Pinwheel ( Zebra) Biscuits:

All you need is some cookie dough from this Vanilla Cookie Recipe and some Dark Chocolate Cookie dough.

Roll out equal sized rectangles of each dough.

Lay them on top of each other

Roll it into a sausage shape.

Wrap in cling-wrap.


Cut into slices.

Bake at 180'C for 10-12 minutes - depending on how large and thick your slices are.

No further decorating necessary. They're good-looking just the way they are!

Very South African, aren't they? We should call them Reconciliation Cookies : )
