I have it on good authority if you serve these during a football game, your team will win. I’m collecting data and that’s absolutely true. . . . so far. Conduct your own test and see. In fact, the guys are so sold on this winning thing that they are willing to watch any game, no matter who is playing, and draw straws to determine “their” team, just to test the theory. Me – I ignore the game and concentrate on my project du jour while munching from the plate of pinwheels at my side – win, win! There are never any leftovers whenever these are served and that’s certainly a winner!
Use crescent sheets if your store has them. No perforations to come apart. You can use any deli sliced meat you like instead of ham and your choice of cheese. Just choose finely shredded cheese as it will stay in the roll better than the thicker shreds. If you are afraid of harming the no stick finish on your cookie sheet with a sharp knife, make the roll on a cutting board. Place the cutting board close to or on the cookie sheet so the smallest distance possible is needed to move the cut pinwheel. Check the pinwheels when they’ve baked for 10 minutes to see if they are done. Watch carefully for any additional time so that they don’t overbake.
