Easy Dessert: Jam Pinwheels

When I received my July- August Country Living issue on Father's Day weekend, I saw this recipe on page 20 for Jam Pinwheels (photo below):
I had all the ingredients to make them, so mid-morning on Father's Day I did just that. I know a recipe is a keeper when Mr. P. likes it. It's an easy and oh, so good recipe!

Giving credit where credit is due, Country Living was good to mention the blog, Handmade Charlotte, for this recipe's publishing, so I searched that website to bring it to you in its original form. Jam & Cream Cheese Pastry Pinwheels actually appears to be the recipe of Kayley McCabe.

I had Blackberry Jam and Orange Marmalade already open in the fridge, and I had a small jar of Lemon Curd in the pantry. The Pepperidge Farm frozen pastry shells yield eighteen of these pinwheels, so I prepared an even mix of each flavor. Mr. P. loved the blackberry, so I left those for him, but my [first] favorite was the lemon, followed by the orange marmalade.
The cream cheese is mixed with a tsp of lemon juice and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (I always add more vanilla), along with 1/4 c of confectioner's sugar. Click on the recipe link above, or see the CL printed instructions for details and for proper pinning, please. They're easy to copy with yummy results. The pinwheels make for a fun display when serving, too.
A great anytime dessert, but they'd be especially good for a breakfast dessert. Or, just skip the breakfast and go straight for the dessert with coffee, tea or milk. ;)
