    Okay, these are totally impressive! And gotta love those psyllium husks! When my mom gets here this weekend, we are going to make these. She always made pinwheel cookies when I was growing up, they were just not near as healthy as these. LOL!!

    Wow, these look great. I love using psyllium husks in baking – they work so well as a “gluten” replacement.

    Hmm… I wonder if these would work with Psyllium Powder? Everytime I think I’ve got everything I could POSSIBLY need in my pantry… well… The cookies look amazing, I’d never have thought of this combination but now I WANT them. Hmm… maybe 1 Tbsp psyllium powder? Amy, my brain was so enjoying it’s nap. :-)

    I can’t recall ever coming across pinwheel cookies, but these look lovely. Orange fig filling sounds divine.

    Yum! These would be fabulous hostess gifts Amy. I LOVE them. And I love that you can roll them out. Great tip about using coconut oil too – that’s important and could be the reason why my shortbread cookie recipe isn’t coming together! xo

    @Maggie, Yes…it could be. That darn melting point…we can chat about your shortbread and figure it out. :)

    Pinwheel cookies are so pretty and a perfect holiday treat! And of course you can’t go wrong with chocolate ;-) I am so intrigued by the psyllium husks in these as well–I am going to have to start experimenting with that jar sitting in my cupboard!

    @Mary Beth@Grandpaspocket.etsy.com, We have funny names for foods in our family, too. One of the casseroles they make is called Betty Reuter’s Casserole because it was her recipe. :)

    These didn’t work for me. I tried everything imaginable to roll them out, but they were still far too sticky to do anything with. Very time-consuming to have wasted half of my dough as it stuck to everything…. going to try to salvage the rest of it and make thumb-print cookies or something.

    Chickiepea Reply:

    @Chickiepea, Thumb-prints turned out well- change baking time to about 10 minutes. Texture of the cookie itself is not my favorite… I found the husks sort of separated themselves out from the rest of the cookie in my mouth and stuck in my throat. I’m disappointed- this seemed like such a great idea!

    Amy Reply:

    @Chickiepea, I’m not sure what went wrong but something did….the dough isn’t sticky and hard to roll out and the cookies don’t separate and stick in your mouth. If you can tell me exactly how you made the cookies and the ingredients you used I might be able to help you trouble-shoot. These cookies are easy-peasy to make and really delish! (Did you refrigerate the dough???)

    My local health food store doesn’t carry psyllium husks, is there anything I can substitute?

    @Angie Halten, I haven’t tried it with anything else…sorry. Did you check iHerb.com? That’s where I got mine – you can get $5 off with my coupon code if it’s your first order: SIR086

    These are delicious! I used a different flour blend and didn’t need all the flour, but I was so happy with the consistency of the pastry and the textures and flavours! Made my Christmas, just when I thought I mightn’t have anything to nibble on over the holiday! I am grateful to have the husks and figs in this recipe, too, giving me much-needed extra fibre, which isn’t always there in ‘standard’ GF foods. Wonderful job. :-))
