These cookies are delicious, but VERY HARD WORK!!!! My advice is to skip the pinwheel part and enjoy this recipe as tasty little butter cookies. I had to: 1) make the dough a day ahead; 2) separate each color into three balls and refrigerate; 3) bring the balls out to warm for a few minutes, then roll out btw sheets of wax paper to very thin layers; 4) pop the layers back into the fridge for about 30 minutes; 5) take them back out and assemble the layers and use the rolling pin on them to get good adhesion; 6) put the flat layers back in the fridge for 30 minutes so they won't come apart or stick too much when rolling; 7) take them back out of the fridge and roll them into logs; 8) put the wax paper wrapped logs in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour so they won't smush when slicing; 9) take them out, slice the logs into very thin cookies and bake on parchment. (!!!) I had to bake mine for about 7 minutes, 5 minutes were very underdone. Do a test batch of about 4 cookies to find the right time for your oven; don't waste a whole dozen like I did! As I said, these are delicious cookies! But unless you have hours and hours to spend on ONE recipe, roll these babies out and use them as cutouts, or even roll 1 inch balls and flatten with the bottom of a mug. Life will be much easier this way! ;0)
