Mini Cinnamon~Walnut Pinwheels

These are great minis to make & take... the prep & cooking are pretty much 20-25 minutes start to finish. How? Well I've spoken of my cinnamon obsession before... Well, I had another tin of that wonderful Pillsbury Crescent dough & went to work (easy~peasy labor, really). 

All you need for these Mini Cinnamon~Walnut Pinwheels

  • 3 TBSp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup crushed Walnuts
  • canister of Crescent Rolls (pop!)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. 

Combine the first 3 items together in a small bowl.

Pop open the crescent dough & roll it out. Pull it apart into 4 rectangles. On each rectangle, spread the cinnamon mixture completely over the top. Take 1 rectangle & carefully roll it up, tucking in any sugar/nuts trying to escape (can't have that, can we?!)... Do the same with the other 3. 

Slice the rolled dough into 4 pieces each rectangle. You will get 16 rolled pieces total. Lay them on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the pinwheels are browned on the edges but not burnt.
