In honor of a cookie baking contest at the GreenSpring County Fair, I decided to whip up my own take on the classic pinwheel cookie. The idea for these pinwheels was inspired by my favorite combination of flavors: lemon and blueberry. Whenever I come across this combination I fall in love and so in making my own recipe I knew what I wanted to work with.
The result? Lovely pinwheel gems which have a lemon flavored base with just enough of a tang to balance out the sweetness of fresh and organic blueberry jam. Made like a jelly roll, the lemon dough is rolled into a rectangle, spread with blueberry jam and then topped with slivered almonds to add a nutty crunch. Nothing can top these cookies in flavor.
This recipe won 3rd place in the County Fair Competition.
