These gorgeous icebox pinwheel cookies look like edible Christmas ornaments and would be a perfect choice for a holiday cookie platter, or giving as gifts, if you can bear to part with them. If at all possible, use a kitchen scale to measure out perfectly equal portions of the dough before coloring them. The intensity of your red and green dough will depend on how much food coloring you use and what kind. Here, Elisabet der Nederlanden used 1/8 teaspoon green gel food coloring and 1/4 teaspoon red gel food coloring to achieve vibrant results. She also has fantastic recipes for Red Velvet Crackle Cookies and Hot Chocolate Cookies with Aleppo Pepper.
