Lotus PinWheel Biscuits

How to make Lotus PinWheel Biscuits

The Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • Lotus spread, or chocolate spread, or nut butters or a combination all the above!

The Method:

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.

  2. Divide into 4 portions. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  3. On a baking sheet, roll out each portion between waxed paper into a rectangle about 1/2cm thick.

  4. Spread lotus or nut butter over the biscuit dough thickly. Roll up tightly, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; wrap in plastic. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Unwrap and cut into ½ to 1cm slices.

  5. Place apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 180° for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
