Patriotic Pinwheel Pops

During the warmer months in Michigan weekends are spent at the beach, especially the Fourth of July. Patriotic items are an essential part of spending the Fourth of July on the lake. Usually I make sparklers aka chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles. However this year I decided to get a little whimsical and make patriotic pinwheel pops using sugar cookie dough. 

Step 1: Make a batch of your favorite sugar cookie dough and separate into three equal parts. Color one red and one blue leaving one the sugar cookie dough color.
Step 2: Roll out the three colored doughs to 1/4 inch thick. Place the white dough on top of the red and the blue on top of the white. Roll the dough (it will be in a cylinder shape) and refrigerate until firm.
 Step 3: Begin to cut slices off the dough cylinder to your desired size. Mine were about half an inch thick.
 Step 4: Place a lollipop stick into each cookie, and bake as directed.
Step 5: Putting the cookie pops in a cellophane bag gives a completed look to your pinwheel cookies.
