Nutella Pinwheel Biscuit

Nutella Pinwheel Biscuit
It is customary to take some gift when you visit people in their house but I do not find it particularly easy buying something especially if we barely know our host. You never know if they will like it, if it will be useful, if it is appropriate etc. and for that reason I have started resorting to home-made gifts, especially edible ones! Just gobble it, like it or leave it. On one such occasion, I decided to make a variety of biscuits to make an assorted biscuit box. One of the varieties was this pin-wheel biscuit. It is actually very easy to make it, although you may not believe me until you read the recipe. It can be a bit misleading as it appears quite small before it goes into the oven but grows inside, thanks to all the butter and rising agent. So make sure you leave enough gap between them while placing on the tray. Here is a simple yet delightful biscuit.
1 ¼ cup flour
½ cup butter
¼ teaspoon soda bicarbonate
3-4 tablespoon nutella
½ cup sugar

Cream together the sugar and butter

Add the flour and soda bicarb and make a soft dough

Roll it into a disc about 5 mm thick and spread the nutella. I placed this on cling film and rolled flat so it becomes easy to roll it up.

Roll it up and refrigerate

Cut into about 5-7mm thick discs and place it on lined baking tray, atleast an inch apart.

Bake at 170degC for about 8-10 minutes, until sides become light brown.

Cool completely and store in air tight container


  1. Looks extremely buttery and addictive..

  2. Hi Ranjani, refrigerate long enough so it is hard for you to cut it with a knife typically 30-45min in fridge or about 15min in freezer.

  3. oh these refrigerator pinwheel cookies are darn favorite of all at home, u have made them so perfectly crispy...will try out this recipe soon :-)

  4. Tried this out. Came out very well and got over in no time. Thanks for the recipe.
