Carob Pinwheels

READY IN: 1hr 32mins
Recipe by catxx

The kids love the taste and design of these cookies, and don't realise nor care that they are not eating chocolate! The adults are a bit partial to them, too. This is a dairy-free recipe, though they work just as well with butter. It came from Sue Dengate's food intolerance website. Prep time includes chilling time for dough.

  4. Roll out each portion between two sheets of greaseproof paper to form 20-30cm rectangles.
  5. Place one piece on top of the other, and roll up from the long end to form log. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. (You can freeze at this point for future baking.).
  6. Preheat oven to 180C, and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  7. Slice dough loaf into 5mm slices, place on trays and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
