Easy Pinwheels - 12 Days of Canapés
LUNCHBOX TREATS,  OFF THE SHELF CANAPÉS

Day 1: Easy Pinwheel Recipe

For me, it’s not a kids party unless pastry has made the table guest list 😛 Usually, it’s sausage rolls cos they’re loved by both kids & adults, but even then they can overstay their welcome.

These pinwheels are so easy to make you could probably do it in your sleep! not advised though! 😛  There’s no pastry to make from scratch cos who with kids has time to do that? They’re even great as a quick lunchbox treat.

 

Ingredients:

  • Puff Pastry sheets (I used New Way Flaky Puff Pastry sheets) – defrosted
  • Mediterranean Dip – Chunky Sundried Tomato
  • Cheese (I used a mix of Colby & Mozzarella)
  • Hellers Shaved Smoked Chicken

 

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Lay one sheet of puff pastry on a flat surface preferably your countertop lol
  • Spread a thin layer of the chunky sundried tomato dip on one side of the pastry sheet, leaving an approx 1cm margin at the side furthest from you.
  • Sprinkle a layer of cheese on top
  • Add a layer of shaved smoked chicken
  • Starting with the side closest to you, roll the pastry as tightly as you can.
  • At this point, you can pop it into the fridge to be cut and baked later.
  • Once ready to bake, cut into equal slices using a very sharp knife.
  • Lay flat on non-stick baking trays.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until puffed & golden.
  • Stand for 5 minutes before serving (the pinwheels not you)

 

Enjoy! 🙂

 

Note:

  • As with all my 12 days of Canapés recipes, the ingredients are just a list of all the products I used to do this.  Feel free to chop & change for your favourite brands 🙂
  • Leave out the shaved smoked chicken if you wish make vegetarian pinwheels, or change the chicken for your favourite deli meat; just making sure the cut of meat is very thin.
