Chocolate coconut pinwheels

Yield: 48 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Stick butter; softened
1 cup Sugar
1 \N Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 cups Cake flour
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
2 ounces Unsweetened baking chocolate squares, melted
¾ cup Coconut flakes

In medium bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add cake flour mixed with baking soda and salt and beat until well blended. Divide dough in half between 2 bowls. Blend melted chocolate into dough in one bowl; stir coconut into dough in other bowl. Cover each bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, or until firm. Gather chocolate dough into a ball; place between pieces of wax paper and roll out into an 8 x 12-inch rectangle. Repeat with coconut dough. Place one rectangle on top of the other and roll up from a long side into a 12-inch roll. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate about 30 minutes, or until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a sharp knife, cut dough into ¼-inch slices. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cookies cool on 2 minutes, then remove to a rack and let cool completely.
