Cardamom-Chocolate Pinwheels

I've found a new favorite food blog! Dear god, this site is awesome: besides decadent recipes, she includes wonderful photos and notes. I didn't make any changes to the recipe this time around, so the original is here. I was impressed with the chocolate-pepper combination as pepper in general is not something I add to my bakery goods. It did indeed blend beautifully with these flavors though: a rich, chewy shortbread followed by the tiniest of kicks.

The prospect of swirling two flavors together in a cookie has left me breathless with possibilities: raspberry and lemon! Chocolate and orange! White chocolate and strawberry! Now that I have a base I believe I'll begin experimenting. Prepare for the pinwheel stampede!

Wow, thank you! Your rendition of the cookies looks stunning. Your spirals are just perfect and I love the photo! I also love your idea of making them with white chocolate and strawberry - yum.

I just discovered your site, and while your recent macaron success was the post that drew me here, I'm in awe of these pinwheels. Yes I've made pinwheels before, and they were nice enough, but these are perfection itself.
