Recipe Update: Perfect Puff Pastry Pinwheels in 5 Easy Steps
I did it! I perfected this recipe! Some of you might know that last week I made puff pastry pinwheels in 5 easy steps. While the taste was good, the puff pastry dough was slightly overcooked and I dare say burnt on the edges. For me, it meant that I needed to tweak the authors recipe slightly. Now that I have, and they came out absolutely perfect, I am SO excited to share this with you again! 🙂 This little pastry recipe will surprise your friends and family, and the best part? It couldn’t be easier to make. It will make you look like you’re a top-notch baker when really you’re a noob-chef just like me! 😀 So go ahead and give this simple pastry a try and tell me what you think. Have a wonderful day everyone and let’s get cooking!
Perfect Puff Pastry Pinwheels in 5 Easy Steps:
- 1 box of puff pastry
- 1 box of cream cheese
- 1 jar of your favorite jam
- Flour for dusting your work space
- a baking sheet
- a pairing knife or pizza cutter
- a rolling pin
Step 1: Dust some flour on your work space and roll out the puff pastry sheet to 1/2-inch. Then take a pizza cutter or knife and divide the rectangle into 6 equal squares.
Step 2: Slice a 1 inch slit into the 4 corners of each square. Then put 1/2 tablespoon of cream cheese and 1 teaspoon of your favorite jam in the middle of each square.
Step 3: Tuck in one corner of each side of the square. Make sure that it’s the same corner on every side so you get the pinwheel effect and then secure all 4 corners in the center of the pinwheel with a toothpick.
Step 4: Bake in a 400 degree (F) oven for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Serve hot and enjoy! 🙂
