Roasted Red Pepper & Herb Pinwheels

Making a recipe that appeals to all generations is often a challenge. I think I might have the only two-year-old who doesn’t love pizza, but I may have found a compromise! This recipe for roasted red pepper & herb pinwheels was a hit with him, and he affectionately called them “pizza cookies.”

Last year, a friend made a similar recipe to these for a holiday party for teenagers, and they were very well-received. I’m always looking for new appetizer recipes throughout the holiday season. Our family enjoys eating a meal of assorted appetizers while we set up our Christmas tree, and again on Christmas Eve. Sometimes we’ll want another appetizer recipe to bring with us to a New Year’s Eve party too, so it’s handy to have a stack of recipes on hand!

Garden Garlic Spread

Conebella Farm cheese spreads make this recipe extra flavorful and super simple. I used Conebella Farm Garden Garlic spread, but many of the other flavors would be also be delicious. Try it with Tomato Basil, Cheddar, Jalapeño Cheddar or Bacon Cheddar spread! It would also be easy to experiment with the filling. Instead of roasted red peppers, you could try artichokes, olives, or other vegetables. Be creative and enjoy!
