Spinach and Cheddar Cheese Pin Wheels

Spinach and Cheddar Cheese Pin Wheels
Spinach and Cheese (Sharp Cheddar and Gouda) Pin Wheels are great mini treats for kids to enjoy as evening snack or in a kiddie party with nice refreshing fruit drink. It’s a simple, inspired snack, easy to make and can easily be doubled to serve a kid party crowd. For parties, keep the rolled and filed pastry log ready in refrigerator, just slice and bake in 15-17 minutes before party starts.

For more rich and golden color, you can brush wheels with egg wash. I have not used egg-wash while baking these because when I baked’em, we were on egg-free diet for few weeks.

For a fancier presentation, you can pack few pieces of pin wheels, some candies, fruits and nuts in small packages (I love Martha Stewart Crafts Holiday Snowflakes Cello Treat Bags for fun and fancy packaging) and distribute as Halloween Treats or Kiddie Party Parcels. Enjoy!!

  • Step for Recipe - Spinach and Cheddar Cheese Pin Wheels 1. Preheat oven at 400 F. Spread one of two sheets (1 puff pastry usually has 2 square pastry sheets) on flour dusted board. Layer with grated cheese and chopped spinach.

Use a sharp knife to slice 1/2 inch wheels from log and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet with cut side down. Brush with egg wash (1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp water) - egg wash is optional, i have not used egg wash in my recipe but I recommend it for more golden color. Repeat the step 1 and step 2 for second sheet.

Savita's Notes:
I have used mix of Sharp Cheddar and Gouda for this recipe (only for my love of Gouda and my instincts to finish leftover cheese from my refrigerator). These pin wheels will taste equally amazing with just sharp cheddar cheese.

  1. Only change I made was to brush the pastry with wholegrain mustard. Took a little longer to cook- about 20 minutes. I ended up bumping the heat to 425 for the last few minutes. Easy to prepare and absolutely delicious, everyone enjoyed them. Definitely will be making again.
    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I'm glad you enjoyed the pastries.
  2. Super easy and everyone loved them. Don't change a thing.
