Recipe Ingredients

1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
1/3 cup gourmet spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs
4 slices (1 ounce each) thinly sliced deli ham
1/2 cup packed spinach leaves


Preheat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into four rectangles on smooth side of Large Grooved Cutting Board. Press seams to seal.

Using Small Spreader, spread each rectangle with about 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with 1 slice ham and spinach leaves.

Starting at short side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll crosswise into six slices using Serrated Bread Knife for a total of 24 slices. Place slices, cut side down, on Large Round Stone.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack.

Serve warm using Mini-Serving Spatula.

Cook's Tip: If desired, 1/3 cup regular cream cheese spread, 1 garlic clove pressed with the Garlic Press and 1/2 teaspoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix can be substituted for the flavored gourmet spreadable cheese.

Variation: Holiday Pinwheel Wreath: Double ingredients for pinwheels. Slice each roll into four slices for a total of 32 slices. Arrange 11 slices in a slightly overlapping circular pattern, leaving a 5-inch-diameter opening in center of baking stone. Arrange remaining slices outside of the first ring, slightly
overlapping each other but not touching the first ring. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
