Is my roll too loose?

Joined Jun 23, 2004
I am new so I hope I'm doing this right. Earlier I began making "Snickerdoodle Pinwheels". They are cookies. The recipe said to roll dough between two pieces of wax paper into a 12x8 size. I did. Then I put the ingredients on the dough and then I was to roll from the short end using the bottom piece of wax paper to guide the dough into a roll. As I got to the end of the rolling, I noticed that the roll wasn't tightly rolled. It was not super loose, but not really tight either. As I rolled 3 more, each one became a little tighter. Should I re-roll the first one or two or will it bake ok after I slice it into cookies (after chilling)? Please help asap! Thank you for your help.

If the dough has been chilled, check to see if it unrolls without sticking to itself. If it's too messy to unroll, don't bother trying.
