Pinwheel Cookies

When kids arrive home from school what do you usually give them? 

Sometimes, I worry that if I give W a heavy snack, he might skip dinner and feel hungry late in the evening. 
Also, there are times when I am too busy attending to other things that I don't have the time to whip up some freshly cooked pancakes or even pasta for merienda.

The easiest solution I could think of is prepare a cookie dough in advance and freeze them in portions. When I need to serve W his merienda I just thaw, slice and bake what we could consume. 

Here's a recipe of one of the cookies I bake for W. It is so cute, any kid would eat it!

Pinwheel Cookies

Ingredients:
180g butter
1 1/4cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
3cups plain flour
1 1/2tsps baking powder
1tbsp cocoa powder

How to do it:
Beat together the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy.
Add in the vanilla and egg.
Sift flour and baking powder then add in the mixture. Mix well.
Divide the mixture in half - adding the cocoa powder on one half, keeping the other plain.
Roll out both doughs, each forming a rectangle about 2mm thick.
On a greaseproof paper (wax paper is ok) place the chocolate layer.
Put the plain dough on top of the chocolate layer.
Roll up like a Swiss roll, then cover with a plastic wrap (cling wrap) then refrigerate until firm.
Once firm, unwrap and slice thinly with a sharp non-serrated knife.
Place on baking trays and bake on 350degF for 10-15mins or until golden.
Put on a cookie cooling rack for about 2mins.
