Chocolate and Custard Spiral Cookies


I hope everyone had an excellent weekend! My was extraordinarily busy and un-weekend like.  I need a weekend from my weekend, in fact.
These little morsels are modelled, taste-wise on the Pilsbury Slice and Bake festive cookies. You know the ones I mean. At Christmas they have the Christmas trees, at Halloween they have the bats, Easter the eggs, etc etc. (Except that the bats were the best tasting right?) Since there’s no way I’d ever find those guys over here I made my own!

1 cup of butter (230 g)
Vegetable oil
3/4 cups sugar (170 g)

cookie recipes
Preheat your oven to 325 F (160 C).  Cream both of your sugars and your butter together.  Add your eggs yolks on at a time and the vanilla.  Mix that all together and then split it into two separate bowls.
In bowl A add 1 cup of flour and the custard powder.  In bowl B add the remaining cup of flour and the cocoa powder.  Mix them both.  If you find that your flour is too dry add in some vegetable oil 1 teaspoon at a time until you can form your dough.  Take the custard dough from bowl A and cover it in a piece of plastic wrap.  Roll it out flat (less that 1/4” thick)
Take the cocoa dough from bowl B and sandwich it between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll it out with a rolling pin (or wine bottle, like moi) till its slightly less than 1/4” thick.  Then place the custard dough atop the cocoa dough and roll them up at the same time like you are rolling up a poster.  Place a piece of plastic wrap on the counter and cover it in sprinkles. Roll your cookie log along until it’s covered in sprinkles, then wrap it in the plastic and refrigerate it until it is firm. At least 15 minutes.
Then slice your cookies about 1/4” thick.  Bake them for about 12 minutes.   Enjoy!

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but there’s are far tastier than their slice and bake brethren.

  • I so know the feeling needing a weekend to recover from your weekend. Yum, I know exactly what your talking about we used to beg my mom to get the overpriced cookie dough because we had to have the image in the center!

    • Am I insane or did certain colors taste slightly different? It could be just me (I once had a friend who insisted the brown m&ms tasted different than the rest.) x

  • You my friend are a genious and I need to make Fredrik make these for me pronto!

    • Do you know the Pilsbury holiday cookies I am talking about?! I love making cookies but I do sometimes miss the joy of things that are both gross (ie deliciously bad for you) and easy… x

    • You know, out of everything I’ve made recently these would probably hold up the best in the mail and only be slightly stale πŸ˜‰ Are you caught up on New Girl because I almost tweeted you a question but didn’t want to spoil it for you… x

  • I’m going to start looking for places to be around the corner from you so I can come over for cookies haha. I always have the best of intentions to make nice cookies, but if I have to refrigerate dough, I normally give up.

    • One of my pet peeves is when I am working on a new recipe and then realise that I need to refrigerate it, having not budgeted that time for it. And by not budgeting that time, I mean realising that I now have to wait longer to eat… x

  • Your baking always loooooks so presentable. But.. does it taste as good?! I’m only kidding, I know they taste good!

    • Do they have the Pilsbury slice and bake cookies in Canada? I am so stupid with American vs Canadian brand knowledge. I naively assumed the brands would pretty much be the same… x

  • Kristen

    These look so good. I’ve tried making these spiral cookies, but I can never make the spiral come out right!

    • If it makes you feel better, some of my spirals were really really wonky. I eat the ugly ones before taking pictures πŸ˜‰ x
