These are super yummie! I am not real sure where the recipe came from, but they are pretty easy to prepare and great to take with you to work to share with co-workers... they will thank you! These are also a big hit at baby showers... or just for your husband on a Saturday morning- because you love him (my husband ate about 3/4 of these... and I let him... because I love him!)
Cream Cheese Sausage Pinwheels
1 Roll Breakfast Sausage
1 Tube Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 Pkg Softened Cream Cheese
Brown sausage and drain.
In a large bowl, combine cooked sausage with softened cream cheese.
Remove crescent roll dough from packaging do not separate sections, and roll out into a rectangle, sealing the perforated areas with your fingers- so the cream cheese doesn't oooze out of the cracks!
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough in a thin even layer. Roll the dough lengthwise (if you roll from the short side- the pinwheels will be fatter- but you wont get as many!)
Once rolled up- refrigerate for at least 20 mins- or if you are in a hurry like I usually am, put it in the freezer til' firm... this will help the dough keep shape while cutting
Cut in about 1/4" sections and lay on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 mins or until crescent roll is cooked.
