  • Oven


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 250 g thin slices of ham approximately 12 slices
  • 165 g (2 cups) grated cheese cheddar, swiss, tasty or any melty cheese


Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (fan-forced) or 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Line two trays with baking paper and set aside.
  • Overlap half of the ham slices on one of the sheets of puff pastry. Sprinkle with half of the grated cheese. Repeat with the remaining sheet of puff pastry.
  • Starting at one end, roll the pastry tightly into a long log. Trim the ends so that they are even.
  • Use a sharp, serrated knife to carefully cut each log into 1-2cm (½-inch) wide slices.
  • Lay the rolls flat and 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake approx 15 minutes until the puff pastry is lightly golden and the cheese has melted.

Freezing - Absolutely! Pinwheels can be frozen in an airtight container (with layers of baking paper in between) for up to 3 months. They can be defrosted and reheated, or reheated directly from frozen.
