It’s Christmas cookie time! As cookie-baking enthusiasts, we love this time of year at Inn on the Creek. It seems that there are never enough days in the holiday season to try all of the new recipes we want to, while making our long-time favorites in our Jackson Hole bed and breakfast recipe book. Here is a recipe from Martha Stewart for Fig Pinwheels that we were very excited to give a try!
Yields about 6.5 dozen
The instructions call for waiting for the dough to chill often between steps. While not the easiest thing to do when you just want to finish a sweet treat, it makes all the difference when handling the dough. Fortunately, it’s easy to work the chilling around preparing other parts of the recipe. We also recommend keeping an eye on the pinwheels while they are baking. We found that ours were perfectly cooked after only 10 mintues. They also went from perfectly golden brown to dark and crispy very quickly. This recipe from our Jackson Hole bed and breakfast recipe book reminds us of a fancy homemade “Fig Newton”, but way more delicious!
