Sorry Mary.

I couldn’t resist. Forgive me?

Sometimes my snarky humor makes me do bad things. ::hangs head::

I promise I am not a mean person. My inner UCLA football love made me do it. It looks like a little Bruin bear sitting on my shoulder with devil horns and a pitchfork.

Don’t laugh at my hand drawn horns and pitchfork.
You try to draw free hand with a mouse! It’s hard! HAHA

Yeah that’s him.

He made me do it.

T minus 1 week, 1 hour, 7 minutes til kickoff…

Recipe from Good Eats Blog

Makes about 32 pinwheels


1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened (I used 8oz Neufchatel cheese)
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled* (I used 10 slices of bacon!)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (I used 2 tsp dried parsley)
1 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 cans (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

* I cooked my bacon in the oven on a cooling rack over a foil lined baking sheet for easy cleanup at 400F for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool and then crumble. (I like mine crispy so I baked for 25 minutes.)


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix cream cheese, bacon, Parmesan cheese, onions, parsley, crushed red pepper flakes and milk until well blended; set aside.

Take two triangular pieces of dough and press the perforations together to seal and create a rectangle. (Each can will have 4 “rectangles”.) Divide the cream cheese mixture into about 8 equal parts and spread 1/8th of the mixture evenly on each rectangle dough. Cut each rectangle dough lengthwise into 4 equal pieces, approximately 1/2 to 3/4-inches wide. Roll the dough up into a pinwheel and place on baking sheet.

[NOTES: I used a pizza wheel to cut each rectangle into 4 strips.]

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

    Wow, the filling sounds and looks delicious! At least you saved a little on the Neufchatel.. haha. I’ve never had Neufchatel before, just low fat cream cheese.
