  • Beat first 4 ingredients with mixer until well blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Divide dough in half. Mix half the dough with chocolate. Divide each portion in half again. (You will have 2 white and 2 chocolate pieces.)
  • Roll 1 white dough piece into 10x8-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Top with 1 chocolate piece, broken into smaller pieces; press gently into white dough. Starting at one long side, tightly roll up dough to form log; wrap with plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Cut each log into 30 slices; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 min. or until lightly browned. Let stand on baking sheets 2 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.


Substitute 1 cup icing sugar for the granulated sugar.

    Looks great, no taste.

    These were simple. Mine weren't so much wheels as they were ovals, but I think thats due to the care of how I rolled them, they still look cute. I rolled mine out on a piece of plastic wrap covered in flour, and to roll them just picked up the end of the plastic wrap and it took care of itsself, so if your not concerned about prefect circles, its a good way to do it, And then they are wrapped for the fridge. As for taste, they are kind of similar to store bought cookie dough, only without the after taste. I'll make them again.
