I'm giving this 4 stars, but only due to the taste and few ingredients (easy & cheap). I must have done something very wrong because my pinwheels looked more like "turkey cranberry blobs" than nice, neat rolls. First, the crescent dough was difficult to work with and I was unsuccessful in "pressing perforations to seal." When I went to roll the dough, it came undone in all the original perforations, depsite my efforts to press them closed. Also, I must have put too much filling (turkey, cranbery, cheese) on the flattened dough because when I went to roll the dough, the filling just oozed out of the long end, making it difficult to cut into neat slices. I would reccommend leaving at least 1 inch on one long edge without filling ...and use the filling sparingly. But like I said, the taste was great! Very sweet and buttery. Like little turkey sandwiches, but better. My family liked them, despite their appearance. :)


I made these last year, they were a huge hit, easy on the wallet and a way to use up leftover turkey! my kids and husband loved them!

This is a big mess. The crescent rolls don't hold together and the cranberry sauce is coming out all over. i tried to bake it as a loaf and then cut in pinwheels but that's not working either.
