These easy to make Christmas Pinwheel Cookies will make a beautiful and colorful addition to your cookie platter this year! This post is part of my ambassadorship with Krusteaz, however my thoughts are 100% my own.
I can't believe that the holidays are around the corner! This time of year goes by so quickly, and I always feel like there is more that I want to make!
Making edible gifts for family and friends is probably my favorite part about the holidays. I spend weeks planning out the perfect cookie/candy tin. I like to make sure that there is a good assortment, they will all fit in a tin, and of course that there is a good balance of color. It's the holidays after all, so even food has to have a festive feel right? I swear, I spend more time on planning my cookie platters than I do on the real gifts for family.
These Christmas Pinwheel Cookies are the perfect addition to any cookie box gift. Not only do they add festive red and green color, but they are delicious to eat. I like to use Krusteaz Sugar Cookie Mix to make these cookies. With only a few ingredients and steps, and lots of sprinkles, this is a great cookie to have my kids make.
By using the mix, we are able to have a bunch of cookies ready in no time. That is, if my kids don't eat them all before they hit the assembly line!
