Directions

  1. Cut butter or margarine into flour with pastry blender. Stir in sour cream. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
  2. Mix together 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Divide dough into halves.
  3. Roll 1 half into rectangle, 20 x 7 inches, on a sugared, well-floured cloth-covered board. Sprinkle with half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll up tightly, beginning on the 7 inch side.
  4. Roll other half of dough into a 20 x7 inch rectangle. Sprinkle with remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place loose end of roll on the 7 inch side of the rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Continue to roll up tightly; pinching edges of dough into roll to seal.
  5. Wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 48 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  7. Cut roll into 1/4 inch slices. (For easier cutting, wrap a length of thread around roll at 1/4 inch increments and pull tightly until slice is cut.) Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Mix 3 tablespoons sugar and the water; brush over cookies. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.

I love this recipe and have been making it every year for the past 5 years at least, maybe longer! Only thing that I do different is before baking I dredge the cookies in a cinnamon sugar mixture and then place a baking sheet. It gives the cinnamon flavor an extra kick!

I didn't care for these, they are crispy, but taste's too doughy. I won't make these again.

I made this cookie for a party. It was very festive looking and tasted great. It was a hit with us and well worth the effort.

This is even better if the pinwheels are glazed with cream cheese frosting

Tasted fine and they did work out alright but a lot of work. Did like the glaze on top - I will use that again but don't think I will spend the time to make these again.
