Every time I make these they are the first appetizer that is gone. They are absolutely delish!

These scrumptious pinwheels are a delicious appetizer. They'd even be good for brunch. The sweet apples are a nice contrast with the savory dough and spices. Cumin adds an earthy flavor that we really enjoyed with the apples. Chopped cashews add a little crunch. The filling is wrapped in buttery crescent roll that's baked until flaky. Yum!
