Jam filled Pinwheel Cookies

We are in the 3rd week of Blogging Marathon#51 and under the eggless cookies theme I am sharing a simple and cute looking cookies.I bookmarked this recipe from Priya's blog where Divya shared it in a guest post.
These cookies were made with egg and cream cheese but I made an eggless version.Also used thick yogurt instead of cream cheese and powdered sugar as it has a considerable amount of corn starch helps in binding.Any type of jam can be used,you can either keep it inside and fold or fold it and keep it on the top.
One of my friend's daughter who is a teen helped me out to roll the cookies and so humble to be a hand model to hold the cookie.Now off to the recipe........................................

                                                                                                 Jam Filled Pinwheel Cookies

  • With the help of pizza cutter or knife the round shaped flatten dough to a square of 2x2 inches as shown.Cut the four edges slightly and keep the center portion intact.Fold each cut edge as shown to form a pinwheel.

  • Keep a dollop of jam in the center of the pinwheel or keep the jam in the center before folding and fold the edges to form a pinwheel.
  • Arrange it on a lined baking tray and sprinkle chopped nuts on the top of the cookies.Bake it for 10-12 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 350 F.Let the cookies gets cool down completely.
