Neopolitan Pinwheel Cookies

I was soooo happy how these turned out.  They are so cute.  Though to confuse everyone the vanilla is actually almond flavour, the strawberry is just vanilla with red food colouring but the chocolate is chocolate.  They take a bit of work but the end product was worth it.
