Pinwheels are a elegant appetizer that only take minutes to prepare.  While you can always make the dough from scratch, it is much easier and faster to use the store bought variety.  The beauty of pinwheels is that they can be filled, rolled and cut with just about anything - sweet or savory.  These two recipes tend toward the savory end because they intended to be party appetizers but can easily become a buttery cookie with some dried fruit, nuts, and sugar.
