Pesto Pinwheels

Written by chanie on May 15th, 2012

If you love pesto, you’re gonna fall head over heels for these pinwheels. I mean, who doesn’t love anything made from puff pastry? The light and flaky dough paired with sharp cheddar cheese and delicious pesto makes the perfect appetizer for your dairy Shavuous meal. You can even fill them with marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella to make pizza pinwheels, and serve a duo on the table.

The best part about making these is that you can prepare them in advance. Just freeze the puff pastry after you’ve rolled in the ingredients. When you’re ready to make them, just thaw, slice, bake and serve!

      There is Sharon! It’s filo dough. However, you wouldn’t be able to make pinwheels with it. You could try little bites or borekas instead (with the pesto and cheese inside). To keep it low fat, just use cooking spray between the layers instead of butter.

    Do you have a pareve version of this?

    • chanie says:

      For the pesto, you can use the following recipe and leave out the cheddar.

      2 cups packed fresh basil
      ½ cup pine nuts
      2 large garlic cloves
      juice of 1/2 lemon
      1/2-2 cup extra virgin olive oil
      salt & pepper to taste
