Italian Pinwheels

Here is another recipe for one of our favorite party foods - Italian Pinwheels.
My daughter loves these pizza like appetizers and often requests them on spaghetti night instead of garlic bread.  I prefer mine with a side of marinara sauce - yum!

Refrigerated cresent rolls make them easy to prepare. 
Serve them at your next party and everyone will love you!

Italian Pinwheels

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup sliced pepperoni, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1 egg yolk
1 can (8 oz.) Pillsbury cresent rolls
1 egg white, beaten

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, mix cheese, pepperoni, oregano and egg yolk.
Unroll dough; separate dough into 4 rectangles.  Firmly press perforations to seal. 

Spread each rectangle with about 3 T pepperoni mixture.  Starting at the shortest side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal.  Cut each roll into 6 slices.  Place, cut side down, 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Brush with beaten egg white
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.
