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.
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
Cool completely and store in air tight container
