No Bake Pinwheel Cookies

I came to know about the sad and sudden demise of Jaysree Satish of Kailas Kitchen though I do not know her personally I felt saddened after reading Aparna's and Priya's post and wanted to participate in remembering Jayasree. May her soul rest in peace and I pray that her family gets the strength to endure the pain of losing her so suddenly...

I made Jayashree's No bake pinwheel cookies as a tribute to her.

Marie Biscuit: 1 pkt.
Cocoa Powder: 2 tbsp.
Powdered Sugar: 5 tbsp.
Butter: 2 Tbsp
Milk: 4 tbsp.

Cream butter and sugar, keep this aside.

Add the marie biscuits in the mixer grinder and powder them fine, I like to seive them also.
Mix in cocoa powder and 2 tbsp powdered sugar and make into a dough by adding milk.
Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape. Spread the filling evenly. Leave some space at the edge.
Now, roll from one end to form a log shape. Make sure you roll it really tight and seal any cracks as you roll.
Cover the log in butter paper or aluminum foil and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Cut into 1 inch pinwheel cookies and serve.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.
