Cherry-Nut Chocolate Pinwheels

Chocolate and cherry the perfect combination. The only ingredient I needed to complete this recipe was the dried cherries. I headed to my local Trader Joe’s for a package. I thought it would be easy but there were several kinds of dried cherries. I ended up choosing Tart Montmorency and that was the right decision. These ended up coming out perfect tasting but I had a few execution errors. I did not chop the cherries and pecans (I substituted) fine enough which made it tricky to roll and slice. I had trouble with the dough cracking as I rolled which I attributed to haste and not chopping fine enough. Despite my few little errors they mostly came out right, a few of mine fell apart. To see what others thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    Oh, that photo is so good…without the drizzle you can really see the pinwheel in the cookie, a beautiful photo. You can really see the pieces inside, that looks wonderful.


  4. Well you certainly got beautiful pinwheels and with the trouble this dough gave me, I know that is a success!! Great job!
