Sprinkles Make You Smile!

Sprinkle Spiral Pinwheels.... these are melt in your mouth cookies!
2c. cake flour +2 T
1/2tsp baking powder
1/4tsp salt
2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/4c. sugar
2 1/2 sticks butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp strawberry extract, 1/2tsp rose food coloring, 1 tsp. vanilla, sprinkles

Combine 2c cake flour, powder, salt, powdered sugar, regular sugar in food processor and mix. Add the butter in pieces and pulse till all crumbly. Add vanilla and process till it forms a ball. Divide dough in half and put one of the halves back in processor. Add to it 2T. flour, food coloring and strawberry extract and combine. Roll out each portion of dough between 2 sheets of wax paper to 1/8 inch and chill both in fridge on a cookie sheet at least 2 hours or up to 2 days. Remove top wax paper on vanilla & Put a few dabs of water on top. Remove top wax from pink dough and gently flip it on top of the other dough. Lightly press it on top. Roll up on the long side jellyroll style and cut in half. Roll each half in sprinkles and chill overnight. (I cheated and didn’t wait that long) Slice into 1/4 inch pieces and bake at 325 for about 15 minutes on parchment paper.

*** If you don't want to purchase strawberry extract just use vanilla. The strawberry flavor was very subtle!

In step 2, you state, "1/2 tsp strawberry extract, 1/2 tsp rose food coloring (red?), 1 tsp vanilla", but in the instructions there is no mention of this second 1 tsp vanilla. Mistake? Secondly, normally we bring butter to room temperature but this did not allow the mixture to be "crumbly". Salted or not? I am in the "chill overnight" step and I did not add the extra 1 tsp vanilla, and I did add 2 extra tablespoons of flour to each portion since the dough was too wet. I feel like there are steps missing and not enough detailed instruction.

Rose food coloring is the name of the color I used. The second tsp of vanilla is in case you don't want to use the strawb extract-this is mentioned at the end. I always use salted butter but that is up for personal opinion and unsalted works equally as well.

I struggled a little with the instructions (see above) but persevered and these are delicious! I love how the cake flour changes the consistency. These will definitely be on the annual list! Thank you!
