Cinnamon Pinwheels

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup cold butter
3/4 cup milk
Filling:
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Topping:
1 tablespoon cream
2 tablespoons pearl sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter until the size of small peas. Using a fork, stir in milk until dough forms.
2. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough out into a 5x12" rectangle. Spread surface with softened butter and then sprinkle over cinnamon sugar, pressing down to help the filling stick to the dough.
3. Starting from the long side closest to you, roll up dough tightly until you get a log. Cut log into 12 pieces and place cut side down onto the prepared baking sheet.
4. Brush tops of pinwheels with cream and then sprinkle each with some pearl sugar. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown on top and browned on the bottom. Let cool then serve & enjoy!

Makes 1 dozen.
