July 7th, 2010. Yummy Pinwheels~!!!
I love puff pastry! Well….pastry in general…I mean who can resist the flaky, buttery goodness? I had some smoked serrano ham left and some spicy mustard on hand so I figured, why not make some mini pinwheels? Bite-sized=easy to eat without the mess and easy to transport! I rolled out some puff pastry and made 2 kinds of pinwheels. One savory and one sweet! The sweet one is strawberry jam pinwheels. The savory is spicy mustard and serrano ham with aged cheddar.
As you can see I found that it wasn’t easy to cut these into perfect circles…did I defrost my puf pastry for too long? Maybe it was too soft? Ir it could be that the contents were too mushy…ah, whatever! They turned out round enough in the end! One other problem was that the jam made the sweet pinwheels stick to the wax paper…Hmm…!
