Peanut Butter Chocolate Pinwheel Cookies

A crisp peanut butter cookie with a swirl of chocolate inside.

I was going to make my dad mini chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting, but at the last minute he changed his mind and wanted an old childhood favorite, peanut butter chocolate pinwheel cookies. My grandma used to make them for my dad when he was a kid, and they’re still his favorite to this day.

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 oz chocolate chips

Cream sugars, shortening, and peanut butter. Add egg, flour, and dry ingredients.

Melt chocolate.

Roll out dough 1/4″ thick on waxed paper.

Spread melted chocolate over dough.

Roll dough up like a jellyroll. Refrigerate roll 15 minutes. Slice.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.

Recipe from my Grandma Faye.
