Spinach & Sundried Tomato Puff Pastry Pinwheels

These are incredibly easy and delicious. They'd be great to keep in the freezer to use at a moment's notice. Impressive and festive looking treats for the winter holidays too!


1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
1/2 cup re-hydrated sundried tomatoes, chopped finely (or use those packed in oil but drained well and patted dry)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (light mayo is fine)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or more)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 (17.3-ounce) package of puff pastry (2 sheets)


1. Prepare filling: Drain spinach well, squeezing out moisture and pressing between layers of paper towels. Stir together spinach, sundried tomatoes, mayo, Parmesan and spices. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

2. Thaw puff pastry at room temperature for 30 minutes, or until defrosted and easy to unfold. Unfold pastry and place on a lightly floured surface. Spread one-half of the spinach mixture evenly over pastry sheet, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Roll up pastry, jellyroll fashion, pressing to seal seam; wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat procedure with remaining pastry and spinach mixture. Freeze 30 minutes; cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.


*Prepared rolls may be wrapped and frozen for up to three months. Cut and bake slices as needed.

    I made these for my work holiday party and they were a BIG hit! In fact one of the people who writes our intercompany newsletter wanted the recipe so she could feature them in the next issue. I let her know it was your recipe and if they’re featured I’ll pass it along to you. :)

    These look amazing! I would like to bring them to a party but would have to travel to do so. Are these best served warm or are they just as tasty at room temp?
