Cranberry Feta Pinwheels

When I have a choice between bringing something sweet or something savory to a party, nine times out of ten I will choose sweet. Not that I necessarily like desserts that much more than appetizers, but to me, they are just easier. [I mean, unless I’m making cheesy quesadillas or microwave nachos at home…yeah…] However, after making this appetizer for our church’s yearly vision night, I might have to rethink that stance.

Cranberry Feta Pinwheels are fuss-free and amazing. They should be made ahead so that their flavors have a chance to meld, and so their sweet, tangy, creamy, and salty nature can shine through. Baked goods require tons of mixing, measuring, and pouring. Lots of dishes are involved and you have to follow the rules, or else what seemed amazing on paper will turn out like a rock. Or mush. Or some combination thereof. But these… these Cranberry Feta Pinwheels are fuss-free and amazing. They should be made ahead so that their flavors have a chance to meld, and so their sweet, tangy, creamy, and salty nature can shine through.

I can’t wait to try these again… perhaps with some arugula, ham, or brown sugar pecans mixed in? They were fabulous and festive… without all the work of desserts. What more could you ask for?
