mjskit 5/3/13 05:30

These pinwheels are absolutely gorgeous! Looking at the ingredients I'm going to assume that the filling stays soft after cooking instead of baking into a cookie. I love the soft and crunchy mix.

pretty pinwheels Angie :D

Sanjeeta kk 5/3/13 09:01

Pam 5/3/13 16:47

They look pretty! I love anything with coconut.

Elisabeth 5/3/13 16:48

Angie, I adore your Pinwheel Spelt Coconut cookies. The addition of the hazelnuts really takes it over the top. Love the combination of the filling with the cream cheese, coconut, and hazelnuts...yumm; just making me drool over these unusual and most amazing cookies.

BTW-I noticed you also have the same 'anonymous' comment as I did. I finally had to do away with letting anonymous commenters post on my blog after having to delete 150 from my spam folder. Now it is strictly registered users. My daughter Lora had the same problem, except she didn't have the 'spam' and over 100 popped up on her comments last month!

RavieNomNoms 5/3/13 17:30

I love every bit of these Angie! Coconut pinwheels have to be the cookie you get on the way to heaven ;-)

Kristin @Dizzy Busy and Hungry 5/3/13 19:34
