Easy Puff Pastry Treats – Pinwheels

Pinwheels are seriously easy to make and they taste great. You can play around with sweet and savoury flavours and pretty much whatever you have in the fridge. If you’re having friends over for drinks, make these as the perfect snack accompaniment to have on the table or serve as canapés.

My savoury pinwheels:

I used tomato purée, a little leftover feta, some parmesan and oregano.

Then I made a sweet batch with raspberry jam, cinnamon and raisins:
 Here’s what you do: Take a sheet of puff pastry, spread on your chosen filling. Roll it up. Cut them into equal portions and bake in a preheated oven, 200’c for approximately 15 minutes. That’s it.

Here’s a few flavour combinations ideas for you.


  • Cranberry and walnut
  • Nutella
  • Jam and mint
  • Honey, cinnamon and nuts
  • Mincemeat filling
  • Apple cinnamon
  • Shredded coconut and dried fruit
  • Jam and chocolate chips


  • Pesto and cheese
  • Goats cheese and sun dried tomatoes
  • Mango pickle and cheese
  • Cheese, pickle and mustard
  • Walnut and goats cheese
  • Spinach, dill and paneer
  • Red onion and goats cheese
  • Jalapeños and cheddar
  • Blue cheese and walnut

They are quick, simple, inexpensive and delicious!
Peace and loaf 🙂

  14. Hello
    Thank you for passing by my blog and ‘liking’ my post even though mine is not about cooking. This is a great post for me as I often look for snack things that I can make for aperitifs. I used to make something similar to this when I lived in the UK with ‘Gentlemen’s relish’. I am not sure if that is still available but I guess another anchovy paste would be good. I also wrapped knacks in pastry and then cut rounds before baking them. So this post reminded me of these easy and quick things that I can do with ready made pastry.

  15. Hi, thanks for liking my post on the Chocolate Covered Sandwich Cake. Love your blog so will be following you. Oh by the way ‘Vic’ I believe 200C is actually 400F, which, yes is a hot oven 😉

  16. Hi there, Edible Substance! Thanks for checking out my blog. I just wrote the other day that I am not patient enough to make fussy appetizers or elaborate pastries. But you may just change my mind, a la your ‘Easy Puff Pastry Treats’. Perhaps at SavvySIngleSuppers, we’ll give some of your recipes a try-out on our occasional Savvy:Out on a Limb posts!
