Pesto Pinwheels

Pesto Pinwheels

I don’t know about you guys, but the holiday season is not just about cookies for me. It’s also about lots of yummy appetizers! Puff pastry pinwheels are fun because you can fill them with so many different things, sweet and savory. These pesto pinwheels are really easy to make and you can use pre-made pesto if you want to save even more time. When it comes to hosting holiday parties, I am all about any shortcut I can take and still get a good result. And you can never go wrong with pesto! I kind of want to put it on everything and it pairs perfectly with buttery pastry dough. This little appetizer requires just a few ingredients and only takes about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish!

Pesto Pinwheels

Makes about 20 pinwheels

Ingredients:
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup pesto (homemade or pre-made)

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Unroll the puff pastry sheet. Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl. Spread the pesto on the dough leaving about a 1/2 inch from the edges. Then, from the shorter end, roll the pastry dough. Brush the egg wash along the edge and then pinch to seal together. Use a sharp knife and cut the roll into 1/2-inch slices. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.

Note:
If you are feeling a little creative, try making my Arugula Walnut Pesto!
