Preparing the Cookies
  1. As preparing the cookies would take around 10 to 15 minutes thus preheat your oven at 180° degrees for 10 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into two equal parts into two separate bowls. Set one portion aside and add 2 Tbsp. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder to the second portion.
  3. Knead the dough well with cocoa powder till the cocoa powder merges well with the dough. It may appear dry in the beginning but after continuous kneading it will soften and would stop sticking to the pan walls. Our chocolate dough is ready. This would take around 2 minutes.
  4. Now spread a cling wrap on a chopping board / silicon rolling board. Chopping board / silicon rolling board is preferred. Make sure there are no frills on the cling wrap. Use a butter paper to roll the dough if you are planning to roll the dough on a flat surface like your kitchen slab instead of a chopping board.
  5. Place the white dough on the cling wrap. Roll the white dough a little, using a roller pin. Do not apply much pressure while rolling.
  6. Now, using your hand flatten the chocolate dough and place it at the center of the white dough.
  7. After placing the chocolate dough at the center of the while dough, roll the dough’s together applying light pressure. As the dough is very soft, thus we will turn the chopping board while rolling, instead of the dough. Turn the butter paper carefully if you are rolling the dough on a flat surface.
  8. While rolling, if the edges of the dough crack, fix them by pressing cracked edges of the dough, with your fingers. Keep the thickness of the dough at about 1 centimeters.
  9. After rolling, hold one end of the cling wrap / butter paper and fold the cling wrap / butter paper to roll the dough into a cylindrical shape. Roll the dough very carefully and slowly.
  10. With each roll, pull the cling wrap / butter paper out towards the direction of rolling, so that the cling wrap / butter paper does not get pressed or stuck between the dough. Repeat till the dough is rolled into a proper cylindrical shape.
  11. Once the dough is rolled into a cylindrical shape, pack the ends of the roll by applying pressure using your palm.
  12. Now, before removing the cling wrap / butter paper, roll the dough little with the palms of your hands to give it a perfect cylindrical shape.
  13. Remove the cling wrap / butter paper. Our cookie roll is ready for cutting. Place parchment / butter paper on the baking tray. Make sure the paper is of the size of the baking tray.
  14. Using a sharp knife, cut cookies to your desired thickness. The ideal thickness advised is 1 centimeter. Place the cut cookies on the baking tray. As these cookies do not expand much at the time of baking, thus place them at a distance of 1 inch from each other.
  15. Number of spirals in your cookies depend upon the length of the rolled dough and the number of the rolls given.
Baking the Cookies
  1. After preheating, bake the cookies at 180° degrees for 20 minutes. Baking time may vary upon the brand and the age of your oven.
  2. After baking for 20 minutes, our cookies are ready. A brown bottom on the baked cookies indicates well baked cookies.
  3. Let the cookies cool down to room temperature. They would be crunchier after cooling down.
  4. Our Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies are ready to be served. Enjoy them with coffee and tea.
