Pesto Puff Pastry Pinwheels

Holy holidays, where has the time gone? The holidays have definitely snuck up on me, but I'm not stressed about it. With a little help from some pantry staples, and Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese, I'm always prepared for last minute guests. My pesto puff pastry pinwheels are super festive, and SUPER easy! They're so simple to put together, and wonderfully cheesy thanks to the additional of Kraft Natural Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, available at your local Walmart!

I love filling these pesto pinwheels with basil and sundried tomato pesto, just because they're green and red, AKA perfect for the holidays. These pinwheels look so complicated to make, and taste elegant. They're also perfect to serve warm or at room temperature, and you can even assemble them ahead of time and then just bake them off when you're ready! Make ahead appetizers that will wow your guests...I'd say that's a recipe for stress-free holiday entertaining.
