Before we dive into the recipes, here are some of the most commonly asked questions about making these delicious snacks.

How do I Store Pinwheel Sandwiches?

Because they usually include dairy, meat and sometimes other perishable ingredients, they shouldn’t sit out for more than a couple of hours at a party. After that, you’ll need to refrigerate them in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap.

If you’re making them with salmon or other types of seafood, you’ll want to put those back in the fridge after about an hour.

Can You Freeze Pinwheels?

Most pinwheels will freeze well for up to a couple of months, but that largely depends on the type filling you use. Mayonnaise and sour cream have a tendency to break down when frozen and then thawed, it’s best not to freeze those. You’ll have better luck with those that have a cream cheese filling, as they typically freeze pretty well.

Ham Rollups on Plate

Can I Make Pinwheels in Advance?

Yes, if you don’t have time to make pinwheels the day of your party, you can make them up to 24 hours in advance. It’s a great way to save a little time on party day. Don’t make them more than a day in advance if you’re using a loose creamy filling though. It can cause them to become soggy.
