Red Velvet Shortbread Pinwheels
The last couple of years I have taken gingerbread men cookies to work on the last week before we break up for the holidays. This year, I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to do pinwheels. And not just ordinary pinwheels, but the ones with sprinkles around the outside for a little extra festive flair. Originally, I had intended to just add red dye to half the mixture, but I bought some Lorann red velvet emulsion a while ago, and haven’t yet had an opportunity to use it. The emulsion is supposed to be a mixture of flavouring and colouring.
The colour was vibrant, but the red velvet flavour was maybe too subtle, so don’t skip the vanilla. If I was doing a cake or cupcakes, I would have added more, but I didn’t want to affect the shortbread consistency too much. Next time, I may add extra cocoa.
