2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup coarse sanding sugar
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat 1 minute longer.
Add combined flour, baking powder and salt, beating on low speed until just combined.
Divide dough in half. Melt chocolate in microwave on HIGH 1 min., stirring until completely melted. Add melted chocolate to half of the dough and mix until completely blended. Wrap both pieces of dough in plastic and refrigerate 1 hour.
Divide dough pieces in half, creating 4 pieces, 2 plain and 2 chocolate. Working with 1 piece at a time (keep remaining dough in refrigerator), roll each piece between 2 sheets of wax paper into a 7” square. Place the chocolate squares on top of the plain squares (SEE NOTE).
Remove top layer of wax paper, and using bottom layer of wax paper, roll up dough into a tight pinwheel. Roll in sanding sugar to coat outside completely. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Unwrap cookie rolls and cut each into 24 slices (SEE NOTE). Place on ungreased baking sheet 2” apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown on bottoms.
