Mediterranean Crescent Pinwheels

I’ve had this kicking around my recipe box for a few months now and decided today’s Star Wars Marathon was the perfect time to make it. I mean come on — you can’t tell me these don’t look like Leia’s spiral buns from “A New Hope”…right?

Leia's Spirals

The really great thing about these is that you could make them a little more kid friendly by using ham and some mozzarella, or really any meat/cheese combo you like. They are delicious.

Mediterranean Crescent Pinwheels

1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
1/2 pound prosciutto or cooked ham, thinly sliced
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon 100% Extra Virgin Olive or Pure Vegetable Oil
6 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with No-Stick Cooking Spray. Separate or cut dough into 4 rectangles; place on lightly floured surface. If using crescent dough, firmly press perforations to seal. Press or roll each to form 8×5-inch rectangle.
  2. Arrange 1/4 of prosciutto slices evenly over each rectangle. In small bowl, mix cheese, pepper and oil. Sprinkle mixture evenly over prosciutto on each rectangle. Sprinkle with basil.
  3. Starting at short side of each rectangle, roll up; seal long edges. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 5 slices. Place, cut side up, on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets. Serve warm.

  1. Sadly we don’t get things like can Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet. Do you think I could use puff pastry as an alternative?
