Pinwheel Biscuits

I’ve already shared the photos of these bright blue pinwheels over on our Instagram and another mum, who has also had her telly hijacked by Disney films, pointed out that they looked like Moana biscuits. If you didn’t see it before the then “You’re Welcome!”


  • Batch of our Basic Biscuit Dough
  • Few drops of blue food colour gel or paste
  • 50g sprinkles *optional

You will need 2 x baking sheets, well greased or lined with baking paper and some cling film.

Prepare the biscuit dough as per the recipe in the link above then divide in half.

Add the blue Food colour to one half and mix well to colour.

Sprinkle your worktop with flour and using a rolling pin, roll out the plain dough to a rectangle about 2-3mm thickness.

Roll out the blue dough and place on top of the plain dough.

Using the rolling pin gently roll over the blue dough to cover the plain layer underneath.

I feel like I’m saying the word ‘Roll’ a lot here but there’s really no other way to say it so…

Roll the rectangle from the long side into a sausage as per the below.

On a large section of cling film, spread out the sprinkles.

Gently place your dough sausage* onto the film and, ahem, roll to cover in sprinkles.

Wrap gently in the film and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 180°C Gas Mark 4.

When chilled and fairly firm to touch, unwrap and slice 3mm sections length ways.

Place on the baking sheets and bake for 12- 15 minutes or until turning golden at the edges.

Serve when cool.
