Video: Holiday Pinwheel Cookies

This week marks the launch of a new Just a Taste video series on iVillage, where I’m sharing recipes, tips and tricks to help you entertain with ease. And what better way to kick things off than with festive Christmas pinwheel cookies?

Pinwheel cookies have long been a favorite of mine because they’re so easy to customize for any given holiday or event. I’ve shared a variety of color combinations over the years (all made with my favorite sugar cookie dough), so tune in above for the technique then check out the recipes below. Simply switch up the food coloring to make pinwheel cookies with two or three color combinations!
