These Puff Pastry Garlic n' Herb Pinwheels are a quick appetizer perfect for a crowd or party. They are made with store-bought puff pastry dough so they are super easy and kid friendly. If you love garlic bread, you will LOVE these pinwheels!
1Stick Salted Butter((add ½ tsp. salt if using unsalted))
½CupGrated Parmigiano Reggiano
2Tbsp.Chopped Fresh Herbs(I used parsley, chives, basil and thyme.)
¼Tsp.Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter, red pepper flakes and garlic in a saucepan on LOW heat for at least 10 minutes. Take off heat and mix in fresh herbs.
Unfold slightly defrosted puff pastry sheets and brush butter, garlic, herb mixture all over each sheet. Distribute the cheese and breadcrumbs amongst each sheet.
Roll up each sheet tightly and cut into ½-¾" slices. (You should get about 24 pinwheels.)
Place rounds onto baking sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and brush tops with remaining butter mixture and freshly chopped herbs to garnish. Serve hot!
You could easily replace butter with extra virgin olive oil for a healthier option.Use any herbs you like!Make sure your puff pastry dough is cold going into the oven otherwise they wont puff up nicely.Pop the pinwheel log (after its rolled) into the freezer for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the dough to puff up nicely AND allow you to slice your pinwheels easily!
