Sun-dried Tomato Pinwheels

Me and my blogger friends are starting on a month long journey with "Fire Up Your Oven All This April". Enjoy the delicious baked recipes I will be sharing here & do visit the other bloggers too for awesome recipes. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 51.
Pinwheels have been on my to do list for a longtime. Snacks are made very occasionally at home & I got an opportunity of making this snack for world cup series. We totally enjoyed them with sun-dried tomato filling along with generous amount of cheese to make you tempt for more. The store bought pastry sheets with make the job much easier & the filling can be of your choice so be creative & greedy about the fillings.
