Pepperoni Pinwheels

     Party foods and appetizers are some of my favorite foods, but when asked to bring a red and white appetizer to girls poker night I went blank at first. After some deliberation, I decided on something really simple - pepperoni pinwheels. With just four ingredients, pepperoni, mozzarella, flavored cream cheese and a tube of crescent dough I found the perfect snack. This was quick, easy and it traveled well to the party. The girls gave these little snacks a thumbs up.

Pepperoni Pinwheels
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or crescent seamless dough sheet
1/3
(8 oz.) container of chive and onion cream cheese spread
      (or add your own flavors to regular softened cream cheese)
20 slices pepperoni, cut in quarters
Pinwheel ingredients.
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 350.

Roll dough into one sheet. Cut into 4 rectangles.
Spread cream cheese on each square. Top with pepperoni pieces.
Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over top.

Starting at short side, roll each rectangle into a log and place seam side down. Cut into equal pieces. (I got 5 out of each log.) Place cut side down on ungreased cookie sheet.
Pinwheels almost topped and ready to roll.

Bake 13-14 minutes just until edges are golden - any longer and the cheese will start to ooze out everywhere.

Makes 20 appetizers.
