Pinwheels - Cheesy Peppery Pinwheels

Pinwheels are my latest go-to appetizers be it potluck or a self hosted party. They are easy & quick to make & most of all loved by all age groups. There is a variety of pinwheels you can make by altering the stuffing but for this year's Thanksgiving potluck party I made these cheesy peppery Pinwheels which I'll be sharing with you in today's post. I used the crescent dinner rolls & stuffed them with sour-cream, onion tomato & bell peppers to make these delicious, crunchy & yummy appetizers.
