Cheesy Spinach Pinwheels

1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury(R) Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
1/3 cup gourmet spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs
4 slices (1 ounce each) thinly sliced deli ham
1/2 cup packed spinach leaves

Preheat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into four rectangles on
smooth side of Large Grooved Cutting Board. Press seams to seal.

Using Small Spreader, spread each rectangle with about 11/2
tablespoons cheese to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with 1 slice ham
and spinach leaves.

Starting at short side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to
seal. Cut each roll crosswise into six slices using Serrated Bread Knife for
a total of 24 slices. Place slices, cut side down, on Large Round Stone.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven to Stackable
Cooling Rack. Serve warm using Mini-Serving Spatula.
