Recipe Schmecipe: Lazy Man’s Raspberry Pinwheels

This recipe oozes laziness mostly because it is dead simple to make and only uses two ingredients (seriously!).  It’s great for those times when you’re bogged down in work or just not feeling up to spending more time in the kitchen than necessary. More importantly, it costs literally next to nothing!


Pillsbury Pie Crust (purchased for $1 after sale and coupon).


and Smucker’s Raspberry spread (almost $2 after sale and coupon).


So, first things first, let’s unroll the crust (yeah, the menial labour, I know!)


And spread two heaping tablespoons of the raspberry filling, making sure to leave an inch gap on all sides so the filling doesn’t ooze out.


Roll it up into a log shape and cut it into half-inch slices. One crust should yield about 12 pinwheels.


Place it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and feel free to top with coarse sugar for more texture. I also sprinkled some with shredded coconut, but choose whatever topping floats your boat. Finally, place the tray into a preheated oven (350°F/180°C ) for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.


Et, voila! A dessert that looks and tastes like you spend quite a while making it.

    What I did with the piecrusts the last time there were coupons for them was cut each into eight pieces, put some ground nuts mixed with sugar and cinnamon, rolled up, and baked – easy scuffles!

    Hello, I am living in Quebec, and we are making – Pet de soeur.
    You put brown sugar instead rasberry jam.

    My Dad used to make these out of leftover dough…now I do the same lol but this is also a good idea if you’re not baking anything else.

    I don’t like jam, or Pillsbury, so I’m not interested in the recipe, I just wanted to say the photographs are beautiful! Maybe a wee bit excessive on the blue exclusion filter, but still nice! 🙂

  13. I do not even know how I finished up right here, but I believed this put up was good. I don’t understand who you’re but definitely you are going to a famous blogger in the event you are not already. Cheers!
