FOOD | Basil Parmesan Spinwheels

On Monday we hosted a whole passle of kiddos at our new house for a play date and later that night I joined up with some girl friends to watch The Bachelor Finale (note: I was all the way #teambecca, but honestly after seeing him and Whitney and reading some stuff online they seem pretty legit)! Along with some veggies + hummus I was able to pop these yummy Spinwheels in the oven – not only did the mommies love them but some of the babies liked them too! So here you have it, a super simple, quick and easy recipe based off of your traditional tortilla-cream cheese spinach pinwheel.


Basil Parmesan Spinwheels


  • 2 cans of crescent roll dough
  • 1 8oz package of Greek Cream Cheese (a greek yogurt + cream cheese spread)
  • 2-3 tbsp of chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp of chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup graded parmesan
  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F*
  2. Roll out crescent roll dough on a lightly floured surface and pinch together the perforation for the crescent rolls making it one large sheet of dough (I know Pillsbury makes a perforation-less version of their dough so by all means use that and save a step!)
  3. Soften the Greek Cream Cheese in the microwave until easily mixed with a spoon (about 30 seconds-1 minute)
  4. Fold chopped basil, garlic, parmesan, and salt and pepper to Greek Cream Cheese until evenly distributed throughout the entire mixture.
  5. Spread a thin layer of your cream cheese mixture on to your crescent roll dough using the back of a spoon or small spatula.
  6. Lay baby spinach leaves in a layer on top of the cream cheese.
  7. Roll up your crescent roll dough + cream cheese + spinach.
  8. Cut your crescent roll log into 1/4 inch – 1/2 inch slices and lay flat on a baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 11-13 minutes in the oven, let cool, and enjoy!

Happy eating!
