I sat down last night and had a brain storm session with my huge green container of cookbooks, magazines, and other recipes. Yes, they are all tossed ever so lovingly in a huge green storage container. I don’t have a place for them because my children’s books have taken over the bookshelves, and the one kitchen cabinet I could put some in is over the stove. I am only 5 ft. tall. It is just too much work to climb up there after them.
Anywho, me and my container spent the evening in front of the TV. I sorted through a fraction of them and got a handful of ideas for the next couple weeks. Some of my recipes I had completely forgotten about. Some of the ones I saw led to other ideas. This is one of those “other ideas”.
With all the holidays and family gatherings coming up I am always looking for a quick and easy appetizer. If you are too, you are in luck. I hit the jackpot with this one. All the ingredients can be bought ahead and kept in the freezer or the fridge till you are ready to make it.
These took me maybe 10 minutes to prepare and pop in the oven! An added bonus, they use some of that cream cheese we all have…2 down, 8 more to go.
Creamy Spinach Pinwheels
- 1 package of Crescent Rolls
- 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese (softened)
- 1 package of frozen spinach (defrosted and drained)
- 1 tbsp. minced garlic
- ¼ cup parmesan Cheese (Shaky Version)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 ⁰
In a bowl mix together the softened cream cheese, drained spinach, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper.
Pop open can of Crescent Rolls. It will be divided into 2 sections. Carefully unroll 1 section and pinch together the seams so it is one piece of dough.
Spread ½ of the spinach mixture over the dough leaving ¼ inch around the edge.
Roll the dough long ways, and slice into pieces 1 inch thick.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Do the same with the second piece of dough.
Recipe makes 24-30 appetizers depending on size.
I can tell you that these are amazing. My 2 year old was even eating them. These would be the hit of the party at any event!
