Mom’s Italian Pinwheels. In Italy called pizzette.
We attended our first ‘neighborhood’ party this evening, and had a lot of fun meeting neighbors.
I was requested to bring a side dish, appetizer, or dessert, and since I’m still riding the cookie high from Christmas, I went with an appetizer.
And an easy one, to boot!
