Party Food

  My kids love to help in the kitchen, especially at holiday time.  These recipes are kid-friendly and yummy, and we're making them for our Christmas party:

Pepperoni Pinwheels

1 package crescent rolls
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup shredded Italian/4 cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 package pepperoni

Use two crescent roll triangles to form a rectangle, and make 4 rectangles. Flatten out the dough.  Mix the cheeses, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning together and spread onto the dough.  Layer with pepperoni, then roll up the dough rectangles and cut into slices with serrated knife.  Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
(You can store the dough in the freezer and bake them later.)

Ginger Snaps and Pumpkin Dip

1 8oz. package cream cheese
1 can pumpkin
4 oz. cool whip
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp.  pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Store covered in fridge until ready to serve.  Serve with ginger snaps or teddy grahams.
