Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

Ham and Swiss Pinwheels #easy #appetizer #recipe

Hope y’all have been enjoying the holidays! Our Christmas was perfect this year. Santa was good to all of us, we had lots of family time, and the cookies were as delicious as ever.

We’re not done with the holiday season yet though…there is still New Year’s to think about! My daughter’s birthday is the 29th of December too, so this last week of the year is all about the food, parties, and presents!

I thought I’d share an easy appetizer or snack that is good for a New Year’s get together, a birthday party, or just an afternoon snack. These little ham and cheese pinwheels wouldn’t be a bad lunch either if you wanted to serve them with a salad!

These are stupid easy to make, but the soft, flaky crescent rolls are so delicious filled with a tangy cream cheese, ham, swiss, and a smear of dijon. I can never get enough of these and neither can anyone else, so be sure to double or triple this recipe if you’re feeding a crowd!
