Cook's Tip: If desired, 1/3 cup regular cream cheese spread, 1 garlic clove pressed with the Garlic Press and 1/2 teaspoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix can be substituted for the flavored gourmet spreadable cheese.

Variation: Holiday Pinwheel Wreath: Double ingredients for pinwheels. Slice each roll into four slices for a total of 32 slices. Arrange 11 slices in a slightly overlapping circular pattern, leaving a 5-inch-diameter opening in center of baking stone. Arrange remaining slices outside of the first ring, slightly

overlapping each other but not touching the first ring. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
