Planned to make cookies today n thought why not make choco mint pinwheel from the  cookie cookbook which my uncle brought me from Singapore. I didnt have the courage to make this biscuit because it is little difficult to make, but then build some courage and started making this biscuit n I think I decently pulled it off. It came out pretty well though not prefect round shape.(Will definitely achieve next time). the taste was superb the combo of peppermint n cocoa was yummy. Sending this cookies to Champa's Bake-Off event and Baking From Book-Cookies

You need:
Butter                                   180gms
Light Brown Sugar                1 1/4cups

Beat butter n sugar until light n fluffy, then beat in Vanilla n egg. Shift flour n baking powder, mix well.
Divide mixture in half. Add cocoa to one n peppermint to another.
Roll out each half of dough to form a rectangle 2mm thick.
