Pinwheel Cookies for Summer


Today our neighbor delivered some cabbages to our back porch and the other day, they allowed us to pick LOTS of blueberries from their bushes!  Yum!  We also had a pool playdate to go to, so I made up some cookies to take to the kids at the pool and to say thank you to our neighbors.  It was nice and cool this morning.  60 degrees F, so it was a great time to bake.  These pinwheel cookies are so easy to make. Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe... or buy the stuff already made in the store if necessary.  

 Just roll out dough, make 3 in. by 3 in. squares, sprinkle with sanding sugar, slice from each corner to almost the middle, fold the same corner down on each triangle, and push a candy into the middle and decorate with floral decorations and bake!  Simple and cute!

I created and printed the Happy Summer toppers and stapled them to the cellophane bags.  For the "thank you" ones, I used some 4" thank you cards I found at the dollar store as toppers.  The butterflies were all glittery, so they looked adorable.
