This is a super-easy appetizer!  You could make endless variations:  a pine nut, sun-dried tomato and parmesan cheese combination just came to mind.

Herb Pinwheels

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh herbs (I used basil, parsley and chives)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine chopped herbs, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  On a lightly floured surface, or silicon mat, unfold puff pastry.  Spread herb mixture on pastry and roll up.  With a sharp knife, cut into 16 slices.  Place slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat, and bake until puffed and golden on edges, about 15 minutes.  Let cool on sheet for 10 minutes.

Olive Pinwheel Variation

Substitute 1/2 cup prepared olive tampenade for the herb mixture.

    Great Idea, but I don’t think that olive “tamponade” sounds the most appetizing. Tapenade does though! 🙂

      Egads…..thank you so much for pointing out my misspelling. What an unappetizing mistake :/
