Here's an easy appetizer recipe to help occupy the kids (pressing out dough and rolling it into logs) on a buzzing holiday.

Yield:

20 appetizers

Recipe from

Oxmoor House

Recipe Time

Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 10 Minutes

Ingredients

2 (8-oz.) packages reduced-fat refrigerated crescent rolls (we tested with Pillsbury)
1 cup pimiento cheese*

Preparation

Unroll crescent rolls on a lightly floured surface, and pat into 2 rectangles; press perforations to seal. Spread 1/2 cup pimiento cheese onto each rectangle, spreading to edges. Roll up each dough rectangle, starting at 1 long end; cut each into 10 even slices. Place pinwheels on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until browned.

*Use your favorite brand of pimiento cheese, your own recipe, or the widely available 5-oz. jars of sharp process cheese spread (Old English).
