This is similar to the pastry pinwheels I made a few weeks ago except it is even easier to make and just as delicious. This is the kind of recipe you want to keep around in case you need to make a last minute appetizer/snacky food. It takes like 4 seconds to prepare and then you pop it in the oven. SO EASY. And, most importantly, really tasty! I completely forgot to take a picture because I made them on New Year's after I'd already started drinking wine, so I apologize. But hey! An easy appetizer you can make while drinking wine? Who doesn't want that, really? Make again.
Parmesan-Scallion Pastry Pinwheels
Real Simple, November 2010
1 sheet frozen puff pastry -- (from a 17.25-ounce box) thawed
1 large egg -- beaten
3 scallions -- thinly sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan -- (1 1/2 ounces)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan -- (1 1/2 ounces)
kosher salt and black pepper
1. Heat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
2. Unfold the pastry and brush with the egg. Sprinkle with the scallions, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Roll tightly into a log. Freeze until firm but still sliceable, about 20 minutes.
3. Slice the log into 1/4-inch-thick rounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
