Glutenfree chocolate pinwheel cookies are black and white shortbread cookies with a beautiful swirl effect. Simple and fun to prepare, they are perfect for dipping in breakfast milk. Prepared with vanilla anc cocoa shortcrust pastry made with rice and corn flour, pinwheel cookies are also suitable for those who are intolerant to gluten or wheat.
To prepare Glutenfree chocolate pinwheel cookies, however, you will not need to knead two shortbreads separately: you just need to create a single dough, divide it in two parts and add cocoa on one side, and a little potato starch on the other. Then forming the pinwheels will be very easy: just roll out and overlap the two doughs, form a roll and cut into slices. Glutenfree chocolate pinwheel cookies are very simple to prepare: however, remember to respect the resting times, both after kneading the pastry and after forming the roll, otherwise you will not be able to give a precise shape to your pinwheels.

Tips and variation
As mentioned, for the perfect success of this recipe it is essential to respect the rest times of the shortcrust pastry, otherwise the final aesthetic result may be different from expectations. If when you cut the first biscuit you realize that the cocoa shortcrust pastry colors the vanilla one, it means that the roll is not solid enough, so it is better let it rest for a while in the freezer.
