Recipe of the Week – Cranberry-Orange Baklava Pinwheels

I am always on a hunt for something new to try. I really look forward to the Pillsbury Bake Off recipes. They’re generally fun and easy. We made these little treats from their new cookbook for Thursday’s breakfast and everyone loved them.

B&B in Hershey PA


  • 1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ cups sweetened dried cranberries (6 oz)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ½  cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½  cup honey


Heat oven to 400°F.  Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or lightly spray with Cooking Spray. Unroll pie crusts; press each into 10 ½-inch square. Brush squares with melted butter.  Place cranberries, pecans, sugar, cinnamon and orange peel in food processor. Cover and process with on-and-off pulses until mixture is finely chopped. Spread half of mixture on each pie crust square. Roll up each pie crust into a log; pinch edge tightly to seal. In small bowl, beat egg and water until blended. Brush egg mixture over each log. Using serrated knife, cut each log into 10 slices. Place slices, cut sides up, 1 inch apart on cookie sheet; replacing any filling. Reshape slices, if necessary. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove pinwheels on parchment from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Spoon about 1 teaspoon honey on each slice. Serve warm or cool.
