Here’s another easy yet delicious recipe that looks fancier than it actually is 🙂
If you have pre-made croissant dough on hand in the fridge this recipe is a breeze.
Again, this recipe does not go by exact measurements – it is just a quick recipe I like to make for appetizers or a snack 🙂
- 1 pre-made croissant dough (I used the Pillsbury one)
- approximately 8 oz of cream cheese
- several slices of deli ham (or any type of ham) – cut up in chunks (you can add less or more, depending on your preference)
- salt/pepper/garlic powder – to your preference
- green onion, chopped (optional)
- about a tablespoon of dijon mustard
- Preheat oven to temperature as directed by dough instructions.
- Unroll the croissant dough. If you have the dough that’s already pre-sliced when you roll it out, you can do these steps (below) individually.
- In a mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, chunks of ham, salt, pepper, garlic powder, green onion, and dijon mustard until everything is mixed well together. (**Note: if your cream cheese is too hard to mix, you can heat it up for like 30 seconds in the microwave to soften it)
- Spread out the cream cheese mixture onto the laid out dough. It’s up to you on whether you want to spread out the mixture fully, or to keep an inch or so perimeter clear. (I personally don’t mind the added messiness by spreading the mixture out entirely over the whole dough).
- Once mixture is spread out, starting with the side closest to you, start rolling the dough as if you are rolling a cinnamon roll.
- Once rolled, cut into slices (to the thickness you choose)(I personally cut it up into 8 slices)
- Arrange the cut slices (that should now look like little pinwheels) on a greased baking sheet, and place in the preheated oven for the amount of time the dough instructions calls for.
- Once they are done cooking, carefully take them out. While they are still hot, drizzle some honey over each pinwheel.
- Serve and enjoy 🙂
