Hi, I am Eugenie. Today I am making no-bake pinwheel cookies. Precisely speaking it’s no-oven stovetop cookies.
This side was cooked first, and the back is like this. These are no-oven pinwheel cookies. And these are green tea flavored. The cookie should be well cooked like this. Today it was a stove-top cookie recipe. And check my blog, I also have baking pinwheel cookies. And you can find my daily updates at Facebook and at Instagram. Thank you for watching. Bye for now.
- 1 stick unsalted butter (113g)
- ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar (95g)
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 2 cups cake flour (230g)
- For topping:
- Granulated sugar
- Unsweetened cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, or green tea powder.
- Make dough First, add 1 stick of softened unsalted butter into a mixing bowl. And work with spatula. Then add in a pinch of salt and ¾ cup of confectioners’ sugar. And stir until combined. Now add in 1 egg. Then mix to combine. (When baking) the egg should be always at room-temperature if not mentioned otherwise. And sift in 2 cups of cake flour. And fold until roughly combined. Comparing to French pâte sablée (sable cookie dough), this no-bake batter contains less butter, more egg, and more flour. And work on the dough using your hands and form a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
- Roll up Out of fridge, the dough gets sticky quickly, so top with another piece plastic wrap. And roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Now dust with granulated sugar on top. Generously. You can also use light brown sugar or vanilla sugar as you want. Then dust with cocoa powder. Ground cinnamon and green tea powder are also good alternatives. And carefully roll all the way up. Then cover with plastic wrap and store in the freezer for about an hour.
- Cook over stovetop Out of freezer, cut the roll into half inch thick slices. Then stick in a wooden toothpick on a cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies. On a preheated pan over low heat, arrange cookies. And cook for about 8 minutes covered. Cooking time varies depending on the power of your stove-top and also your choice of pan. And as you know, second batch takes less time. When the bottom is lightly browned flip them over. If cookies are not cooked enough, crispy enough, they will be broken when flipping by holding a toothpick. Cover and cook another 1 or 2 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let sit for another 2 minutes, or until cooked. Then let cool on a wire rack.
