It’s perfect for lightening up dense desserts without sacrificing flavor – our Creamy Farmer Cheese Pinwheels are the perfect example! Top them with dried fruit and nuts, or chocolate chips for a bite sized treat that’s perfectly sweet!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Lifeway Farmer Cheese
  • 2 8-oz packages prepared crescent roll dough (seamless is best)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Optional: mini dark chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts or seeds, for filling

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying with non-stick cooking spray, or lining with parchment paper.
  2. Remove the dough from the packages. Flatten the dough a bit using a rolling pin and then cut the dough into four inch squares. Set aside.
  3. In medium bowl, beat Farmer Cheese, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in optional ingredients..
  4. To form the pinwheel shape, slice a 2 inch cut from each corner towards the center of the dough square.
  5. Dollop ½ tablespoon of cheese mixture into the center of each square. Fold every other corner into the center over the cheese. Press lightly so the corners stay together.
  6. Transfer the pinwheels to the baking sheet. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips and/or nuts over the pinwheels, if desired.
  7. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pinwheels from baking sheet and place on cooling rack.
