Ingredients:

  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup pesto sauce
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup black olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh spinach leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry sheets into rectangles of approximately 1/4-inch thickness.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese and pesto sauce until well combined.
  4. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over both puff pastry sheets, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, feta cheese, and fresh spinach evenly over the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Starting from one edge, tightly roll up the puff pastry sheet into a log shape. Repeat with the second puff pastry sheet.
  8. Slice the rolled-up pastry logs into approximately 1/2-inch thick slices, creating pinwheel shapes.
  9. Place the pinwheels on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them a little apart to allow for expansion during baking.
  10. Lightly brush the pinwheels with beaten egg to give them a shiny, golden finish.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the pinwheels are puffed and golden.
  12. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.

Tips:

  • Feel free to experiment with different fillings and flavors for your pinwheel appetizers. Some popular options include ham and cheese, spinach and feta, or roasted red pepper and goat cheese.
  • You can make the pinwheels in advance and refrigerate them before baking. Just slice them when you're ready to bake and adjust the baking time accordingly.
  • Serve the pinwheel appetizers warm or at room temperature. They are delicious on their own or paired with a dipping sauce of your choice.

Note: The baking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of your pinwheel slices, so keep an eye on them as they bake to ensure they don't burn.

Enjoy the colorful and tasty delight of these pinwheel appetizers!
