Basic Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies
Doctor told me to bed rest, but the thing is I can't sit down and do nothing. I gotta keep moving, but I am no longer taking orders or bake large amount due to the baby coming out soon. Will be back baking once my confinement is over.
My recent bake for today, as I supplies cookies for a cafe boutique nearby my area. I would like to make a little change on my normal daily cookies. Wanted something different this time. And I wanted to share also with my friends this simple, delicious pinwheel cookies recipe. It's crispy, crunchy and also light.
This pinwheel cookie might look a lot of jobs to deal with. Because I like a quick, simple, hassle free method; but I can't seem to resist this one. And my little Abraham was excited over it. So I should give it a try over it.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
