Food for Thought: Spinach Pinwheel Appetizer

I've been crafting and prepping for Thanksgiving most of the evening. In fact, there are pies baking as I type. :)
One item I finished just before the pies went into the oven were these Spinach Pinwheels. They're going to make a great appetizer for tomorrow while we're watching football and before we gorge eat later in the day.

Found this yummy recipe courtesy of a Pinterest find :)

What you'll need:
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
1 pkg of crescent rolls (or you could buy the pkg of dough sheets they sell now, if you wanted)
1 pkg of frozen spinach (thawed & drained)
1 tbsp of garlic salt
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, combine and mix all the ingredients (except the crescent rolls).

Open the can of crescent rolls. It will be divided into two sections. Carefully unroll 1 section and pinch together the seams so it becomes one piece of dough.

(Sorry I forgot to take a picture of this step!)

Spread the mixture over the dough, leaving about a 1/4" around the edge.
Repeat for the second section of dough.

Roll the dough long ways and slice into 1" sections.

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes (or until golden brown).

They turned out so yummy. Little Miss and I had to sample when they were done, well to make sure they were OK of course! ;)
And they were. Can't wait to enjoy them some more tomorrow.
