Pinwheel Appetizer Recipes

These pinwheel appetizer recipes are great when you're in a hurry.

You can do so much with crescent roll dough. Just unroll it, pinch the seams together and the possibilities are endless. I like to keep a couple of cans in the refrigerator around the holidays just in case unexpected guests show up and I need a quick appetizer.
