Chocolate Peanut Butter Pinwheel Cookies

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips
2cupall purpose flour
1/2tspbaking powder
8Tbspbutter, softened
1cupfirmly packed light brown sugar
2/3cupcreamy peanut butter

Recipe Instructions:

1.   Put the chocolate and water in a double boiler. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted. Remove from the hot water and set aside to cool.
2.   In a bowl combine the flour with the baking powder and salt; stir well to mix. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and the brown sugar together on medium speed until light, about 2 minutes.
3.   Beat in the peanut butter and the egg, beating smooth after each addition. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in flour mixture. Remove a little more than half the dough from the bowl and set aside. Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the dough left in the bowl and stir it in thoroughly.
4.   On a floured piece of wax paper, pat each piece of dough into an 8-inch square. If the dough is extremely soft and sticky, slide the paper onto a cookie sheet and chill briefly. Use a pastry brush to paint the square of chocolate dough with water. Top it with the square of plain dough.
5.   Starting anywhere, roll up the two doughs as you would a jelly roll, keeping the roll straight and even. Roll the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and chill for several days or it may be frozen.
6.   To bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350F. Slice the roll about 3/16 inch thick and arrange cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 14-17 minutes until they are firm and light in color. Makes 10-12.
