Gingerbread-Espresso Spirals

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix together one 18-ounce roll refrigerated gingerbread cookie dough and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour until combined, using your hands to knead, if necessary. Mix together one 18-ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, and 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder until combined.
  2. Place half of the gingerbread dough between two pieces of waxed paper. Place half of the espresso-flavor dough between two other pieces of waxed paper. Roll each dough portion into a 12x6-inch rectangle. Remove the top pieces of waxed paper. Using waxed paper, invert one dough rectangle on top of the other; press down gently to seal. Remove top piece of waxed paper. Beginning with a long side, carefully roll up doughs, using the remaining waxed paper to lift and guide the roll. Pinch edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough halves.
  3. Sprinkle coarse sugar onto another piece of waxed paper. Roll one log of dough in sugar. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough and additional sugar. Chill logs for 4 to 6 hours or until firm enough to slice.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut rolls into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place slices 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are just firm. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes about 6-1/2 dozen cookies.
