coconut-chocolate pinwheels


Just wanted to share a yummy recipe that I just made!

coconut dough-base:

8 Tbs butter
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c coconut

cream butter and sugar; add egg and vanilla, mix well; add salt and coconut until combined.

roll this dough between 2 layers of parchment into large rectange, cut off rough edges; place on cookie sheet and refrigerate for an hour

chocolate filling:

1 Tbs butter
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate
1/3 c sweetened condensed milk

melt butter and chocolate in double boiler; take off heat and add sweetened condesned milk; let sit 5 minutes or so until thickened a bit; spread over the coconut dough.


use the help of the parchment to roll into a log. refrigerate overnight; slice in 1/4 inch rounds; bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

I've been thinking that we should have a day, perhaps monthy or weekly, where we share recipes that we love...anyone?
