How festive and fun are these cookies? I’m in love with them!

I’m not going to lie. I’ve always looked at pinwheel cookies and thought to myself, “Wow, that’s got to take a ton of time. Who has that much time.” Then I actually made these little treats and I was pleasantly surprised that they really don’t take long at all and they look super impressive!
