    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    My cousin and I used to make these as children, but we made pinwheel mints" We kept half the dough white, and tinted the other half pink. You roll out each color separately to about 1/4"-3/8", then lay one on top of hte other and roll up, jellyroll fashion. blend in the long edge, and roll the long tube so it is it a uniform cylinder. Slice in 1/4 " slices. Very pretty. I also use peppermint oil, 1/8 tsp, for a stronger mint flavor.
