What You'll Need to Make a Puff Pastry Pinwheels

Puff pastry pinwheels ingredients

There are only three ingredients for this recipe. For precise measurements and recommendations, please look at the recipe card.

  • Puff pastry: I used store-bought puff pastry. When I use puff pastry for my recipes, I use the Pepperidge Farm puff pastry. They are my absolute favorite. Super flaky, and the pastry bakes excellent every time.
  • Raspberry jam: For this recipe, I used red raspberry jam. I like the tartness it has. You can substitute it for any jam you want. Just make sure it has a consistency more like a Jell-O, so it doesn't melt and slides off the pastry during baking.
  • Powdered sugar: Just a little bit of powdered sugar on top. It will work great with tartness from the raspberry jam.

How to Make a Puff Pastry Pinwheels

Thaw pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until easy to handle. Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheits. Unfold pastry sheets on a cutting board. Roll out each sheet just slightly. Cut each pastry sheet into nine equal squares.

Place all pinwheels onto the parchment-lined baking pan and place 1 tsp of raspberry jam in the center of each pinwheel. Please don't add more jam since it will slide off the pastry and melt. I may or may not did that myself. :)

How to Store Puff Pastry Pinwheels

These will disappear fast! But, if you have any leftovers, place them in an airtight container on the counter. To reheat them, just put them in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes. I would not reheat them in a microwave since they will become soggy.
