My Cranberry Walnut Pinwheels are incredibly easy to make. They come together in minutes, and they are kid-friendly. If you have little hands that want to help, by all means, let them. It’s good practice for later on when you want to kick up your feet and make your kids put dinner together and wash the dishes… 😉
I also have to tell you that this is probably the only time that I will reach for the store bought pie crust, but that is only because the two homemade pie crusts I tried in this recipe, did not work out. The dough was too crumbly and my pinwheels looked like blooming flowers. They were cute, but crumbly.
I used cranberries and walnuts for this recipe, but you can obviously use whatever filling you want. I was thinking of doing a blueberry/lemon/pecan filling next time… that sounds really good, doesn’t it? Or a hazelnut, chocolate chip, apricot filling? That sounds even better!
