Chocolate chip cannoli pinwheels
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 18
2SP blue, green & purple, 2pp each
  • 1 package reduced fat pillsbury crescent rolls
  • ¼ cup light cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup light ricotta
  • 2.5 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
  1. Unroll your crescent dough into 2 pieces of 4 rolls. Pinch together any open seams.
  2. In a small bowl mix together your cream cheese, ricotta, icing sugar and vanilla.
  3. Spread evenly onto your two dough pieces.
  4. Sprinkle ¾ Tbsp of chocolate chips onto each piece.
  5. Roll up and and pinch ends closed. Place both rolls in freezer for 20 minutes to firm up.
  6. After waiting 10 minutes preheat oven to 375F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  7. Remove from freezer and using a serrated knife cut each roll into 9 pieces. The best way to cut is slowly cut down into your dough and then once knife is in the dough quickly cut the rest of the way and push of with your knife, if you try cutting slow all the way down your pinwheels might be messy.
  8. Place on baking sheet and bake in oven for 10-12 minutes checking they don't brown to much. Serve imminently, makes 18 pinwheels, 2sp on all 3 MyWW programs or 2pp each.

    These were DELISH! I had trouble with the reduced fat dough, it was really loose and hard to work with, so mine were not as pretty as yours but they were so very good. A word to the wise though, I wish I had only baked half a batch at a time, because I didn’t stop at two like I planned. 😉

      Yes well I guess anything yummy is like that right 😉 Cutting pinwheels can always be tricky, I find it best to use a good serrated knife and start to cut into the dough, once your through the top part of the dough push down quick with knife and then push off.. Hope that makes sense.. and you can always leave them in the freezer a little longer to firm up the dough

    Could I just cook 2 at a time. Leave the rest frozen until ready to use.
