Crescent Pinwheels...

Monday, December 5, 2011

When I was preparing for Thanksgiving,
I decided the day before that I needed one more appetizer.

But there was no way I was going to the grocery store

So I went to my refrigerator and saw that I had
crescent rolls and a cream cheese vegetable spread
and right away I knew I could make something with those two ingredients.

Early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day I quickly put this recipe together and
baked them right when our family started to arrive.

Crescent Pinwheels...


Can of crescent rolls
Tub of vegetable flavored cream cheese

This is the cream cheese spread I used...

Unroll the crescent rolls and lay them flat on a cutting board.
Press the seams together until you have one "sheet" of crescent rolls.

Spread the cream cheese all over the "sheet" of crescent rolls...

Now start rolling the "sheet" up...

Wrap in aluminum foil and place in the FREEZER for an hour.
This makes slicing them so much easier.
I also sprayed the aluminum foil with a non-stick spray
before wrapping so the crescent sheet wouldn't stick...


Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed and
bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes until they are golden brown.

They were so easy to make and so DELICIOUS!

A delicious appetizer for any occasion!

Enjoy your day!


  1. Looks good and sounds yummy! Thanks Lois!

  2. Looks super easy and good, too! My favorite combination. :D
    Have a good week!

  3. Looks yummy and easy...will have to remember this for our annual New Year's Eve get together! :) I posted the YUMMY corn casserole a bit ago...if you try it you will have to let me know if you like it!Hope you have a lovely day!

  4. Good morning Lois! These look delicious! I've decided that I REALLY wished I lived near you so that you could give me some pointers, haha...I can be soo dumb sometimes. I would love to maybe make these for the party too, and they seem simple enough, but I am not sure about putting the rolls together. I haven't used these in years. It seems to me that kind of come like that in the first place?? And I have another question on the popcorn. If I make it up on Sunday afternoon, it would be fine wouldn't it until Friday of the party? And I have around 45 - 50 people coming. Would your recipe make that much or should I double it?

    I was just reading back on your last couple of posts that I missed this week-end as we were soo busy, and saw you mentioned me! How sweet...thank you.

    Have a GOOD day my friend!

    HUGS, Debbie

  5. Those look so delicious! Great to have those few items on hand for "just in case company".

  6. Simple and yummy, just like I like. I saw a recipe similar in a magazine, they had put spinach on the cream cheese, looked good too. :D

  7. Hey they look great - and I can think of other things to put in there too - like cinnamon and sugar!


  8. That does look really easy. I'm going to have to try that.

  9. They sure look delicious!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  10. Oh, they look really good! :)

  11. What a super easy idea! I always mix up 'custom' cream cheeses for the kids with their bagels, and I bet another good filling for your pinwheels would be cream cheese with cinnamon sugar OR a but of pumpkin pie seasoning with sugar and cream cheese...go sweet instead of savory. Oh, you always make me think!!! lol

  12. Oh my goodness - those things are delicious separately... together they'd be addicting! Can't wait to try this - thanks!

  13. Ohmymymy...Just my kind of recipe - easy and delicious! I'll definitely put pinwheels on my menu, especially upon recommendation from a teen. What a hit! Thanks for sharing it, Lois! Merry Christmas!

  14. Don't you just love it when something so simple tastes so good! My family will love these! I'm going to try them for Christmas appetizers! Thank you for sharing. By the way, I made your pizza dough recipe again for dinner last night. We love it!

  15. Oh. My. Goodness. That is so clever and I can't wait to try these. I love quick and easy recipes like this!

  16. Looks delicious! I've been wanting to try something like this. Pat
