Creamy Basil Pesto Pinwheels


If you are short on time, funds or even patience this holiday season - this is the holiday appetizer for you. At just four ingredients it comes together quickly and can even be made the day ahead and then sliced right before being served.

I took these pinwheels to a work event a couple of weeks back and they were quickly gobbled up.  And its a meatless entree to boot....everyone SHOULD like them!

Hey - if you have leftover basil pesto from your garden this past summer that you froze, what a great little dish to put it in.  You know I'm a fan of using up whatever you have stashed away in that deep freeze.
