You won’t be able to help feeling jolly when you get a look at Alton Brown’s Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies. These sweet swirls of peppermint and chocolate dough, jazzed up with bits of candy cane for extra zip, look like something straight from the elves' workshop. All they’re missing is the ribbon and wrap (and maybe a few sleigh bells!).
