Sometimes all you need is one simple product to open the door to a world of flavors and dishes you never deemed possible. The simple yet signature Pillsbury brand has brought that accessibility to the table for years, but these Mediterranean Crescent Pinwheels set the bar to a whole new level. Roll up this easy dish and make your guests an appetizer they can’t find in stores.

Mediterranean Crescent Pinwheels
Here I am back again with a boatload of recipes for you! School is in full swing and everyday I am bombarded by the question when are we cooking? I hate it that we can’t cook everyday, but there are Standards to be covered and all that other stuff the state requires. I am excited about this year’s angels that have been given to me to broaden their knowledge about my love of cooking. I have a plan to teach them 30 dishes that everyone should know when they leave home and endeavor life on their own. I am excited especially when I hear a student talking to a friend and saying to them that I am a cool teacher. It really makes my day because there are times that I have some self doubt. You know every once in a while you just want to know if they really care about what you are doing. I had a lot of fun doing this recipe from Pillsbury. There are so many students that want to help me in the kitchen! For this first demonstration of the year I had some great volunteers. Surprisingly none of the four had any cooking experience, but they did great! I am looking forward to another fabulous year with rewarding cooking experiences to share along the way.
These pinwheels are a great appetizer that can be prepared ahead of time. When ready to serve just take them out of the refrigerator, slice and bake. This will make entertaining easy! I love using fresh basil. Only about a third of my students had ever seen it. I was glad to be able to give them the opportunity to experience it! Nothing better than the smell of fresh basil! And another newbie to most of them was Feta Cheese. Mixing ham, Feta Cheese, olive oil, black pepper, and fresh basil is really a winner! Try it for your next get together.
Here we are having fun in class. This is my sous chef Shane. He did such a good job.
Pinwheels here are ready to roll.
Rolled and ready to wrap in plastic wrap . Refrigerate or put in the freezer before cutting.

With a bit of Google research and a pinch of thyme, you’ll find amazing wines for less than $20 per bottle and often under $10 per bottle. I decided on three variations of Crescent Pinwheels to go along with the wine we selected. Our first version is our Roasted Tomato & Garlic Crescent Pinwheels. Spread a layer of Boursin Garlic & Herb Spread, add a schmear of pureed Roasted Tomato & Garlic, and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Roll them short to long style, slice with a serrated knife, and bake pinwheels for 15-18 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet until edges are nicely browned. Immediately remove from baking sheet and serve warm from the oven. Bacon, Cheddar & Jalapeno Crescent Pinwheels of Love are awe-mazing!! So simple, yet the punchy ingredients make it a stand-out appetizer. A thin layer of Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, crispy bacon pieces, sliced and diced jalapeno and scallion, with a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll, slice, bake. It’s as simple as that. Pepperonini Pizza Pinwheels. I think these may be Dad’s favorite. A little sauce and a layer of pepperoni and cheese. Good enough to make a meal.

**scroll all the way down for full printable directions and ingredient list**
- Get all the ingredients together so you can setup an assembly line.
- First make the cream cheese mixture: Add cream cheese, garlic, some sun-dried tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil, and some of the oil from the packed sun-dried tomatoes to the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend for 30 seconds, scrape down the sides, and blend 10-15 more seconds or until completely combined. Set aside.
- Set out 6 tortillas(I like flavored tortillas like spinach or sun-dried tomato for this recipe, but you can also use plain flour or LOW CARB).
- Make the Mediterranean Pinwheels by layering:cream cheese, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan cheese, feta cheese, and fresh basil. Starting from an outer edge roll tightly while gently squeezing to keep together. Repeat for all tortillas.
- Using a serrated knife, slice in 1 inch or so pieces and lay theMediterranean Pinwheels on a serving platter. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

As mentioned earlier in our post, this is an incredibly easy recipe that is virtually fail-proof.
Step 1 Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F. Oil oven trays line with baking paper.
Step 2 Begin by squeezing any excess moisture from your Spinach. Chop coarsely and then pat it dry by spreading between sheets of paper towel.
Step 3 After combining your crumbled feta and grated parmesan, combine it with your Spinach and sprinkle over your pastry sheets. Now roll your pastry nice and tight so that it wraps around the ingredients and encloses the filling.
Step 4 As this recipe makes 24 Pinwheels you will have 2 rolls. Cut each roll into 12 slices.
Step 5 Brush the pastry with a little beaten egg before baking. This will ensure that your pastry browns up and has a lovely golden shine.
Step 6 Now it’s time to pop in the oven. Place your pinwheels, cut-side up, on trays You only need to bake for about 15 minutes or until browned lightly. Be sure to keep an eye on them and don’t burn or overcook. Enjoy!
Sabra&rsquos Customer Service is Excellent
I am honored to be one of the Sabra Tastemakers. While I love my homemade version of hummus, it is nice to know that Sabra makes a wide variety of flavors, from the more traditional Classic, Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper to the more adventurous Chipotle and Supremely Spicy versions&ndashthirteen flavors in all!
Long before I was asked to be a Sabra Tastemaker, we almost always had a container of Sabra hummus in the house. Now we have multiple containers! And now I&rsquom making hummus pinwheels as well as just eating hummus straight out of the containers!
The Beloved and I, along with friends, neighbors and coworkers, have sampled and enjoyed all the flavors. We did have a couple of issues with our shipment.
- One of the individual serving containers of guacamole was cracked open and therefore inedible
- we found some ground olive pit in the Olive Tapenade flavor (which is incidentally The Beloved&rsquos favorite flavor).
The good news is that Sabra has an excellent customer service team, and replacements are literally just a phone call away.
Quality control is hard enough in my own kitchen, let alone in a high-volume manufacturing facility, so it&rsquos reassuring to know Sabra stands behind their products long after they leave their factories.
If you ever have a concern about a Sabra product, call Sabra&rsquos team at 1-888-957-2272, and they will take excellent care of you.
Ground Beef Pinwheels with Mushroom Sauce
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until a bit of the fat renders, 2 to 3 minutes add onion, garlic, and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir the beef mixture until the beef is browned completely, 3 to 5 minutes more.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or fork. Slowly pour 3/4 cup milk into the mixture while stirring with a fork to form a soft dough knead 8 to 10 times and roll out into a 12x8-inch rectangle.
Spread the beef mixture in an even layer onto the pastry rectangle to cover, leaving one of the longer edges clear. Begin with longer end not left clear and roll pastry and filling tightly into a cylinder, pinching the edge left clear to seal.
Use a thread to cut cylinder into ten 1 1/2-inch slices arrange pinwheels onto a baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until pastry is no longer doughy, 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of milk together in a saucepan bring to a simmer and cook until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon over the baked pinwheels.
