Makes 26-32

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

 

4 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed (I use gluten-free Simply Wize)

4 tablespoons olive paste (store-bought)

200g halloumi, finely grated

100g cheddar cheese, grated

½ cup basil leaves for serving

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1. Preheat oven: Preheat the oven to 210°C fan forced and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.


2. Spread and Roll: Place the puff pastry sheet onto a flat surface and spread the olive paste over the pastry, leaving a small border at the top edge. Sprinkle a quarter of the halloumi and cheddar cheese over the top.


3. Roll, Slice and Brush: Roll the puff pastry into a tight spiral log and seal the edge by pressing it gently. Slice the log into 2cm thick pinwheels, place them spread out onto the baking tray and brush with the egg wash. 


4. Bake and serve: Place into the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until they are golden and puffed up. Allow pinwheels to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Place onto platter, serve alongside fresh basil leaves and enjoy.
