What’s Cookin’? Patty’s Cranberry Walnut Pinwheels [RECIPE]
Patty Millay is back for another edition of What's Cookin'? and, this month, she's serving up a Thanksgiving side dish that's gonna make you wanna slap a pilgrim. LOL! She's baking up Cranberry Walnut Pinwheels. Here's how to make them.
This is our first Thanksgiving in our new home. I'm hosting a full out Thanksgiving dinner for the family and I want to do something unexpected. This recipe pulled together the traditional cranberry requirement but with an unexpected twist! This takes just 15 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to bake - what more could I ask for!
CRANBERRY WALNUT PINWHEELS
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
zest of 1 orange
2 refrigerated pie crusts
2 TBL melted butter
1 whole egg
2 TBL water
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown. Place pinwheels on a cooling rack and spread with a teaspoon of honey. Let cool and store in an air tight container.
*If you have trouble cutting the rolls, place them in the freezer for 10 minutes and then cut them.
I don't recommend using home made pie crusts as this can easily get too crumbly and difficult to keep in a pinwheel formation.
