64 pinwheel
1 hr 15 min
02 hrs 50 min


1 1/3 cups Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 tablespoons milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

4 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 cup multi-color decorator candies

64 pastel mints

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and 1 cup sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in decorator candies. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  3. STEP 3

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-fourth at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), into 10-inch square. Cut into 16 (2 1/2-inch) squares. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Place pastel mint in center of each square. Make 1-inch cuts with scissors from the corners of the squares towards the centers. Fold every other point to the center atop the mint.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

Tip #1

Rolling cookie dough into a square isn’t hard. Just shape the dough into a rough square before you begin rolling. Then roll from the center to the edges, rolling equally in both horizontal and vertical directions. Use a ruler to check dimensions as you roll.
