Ham & Cheese Puff Pastry Pinwheels

Here is another finger food I made for the Baby Shower. They are a little bigger than your usual hors d’oeuvre but will still look nice on the platter with the other hors d’oeuvres when I reheat and serve them! This is also very quick and easy to make!



These are the ingredients I started with.


I began by rolling out the puff pastry into a rectangle, about 8 x 10.


I spread the Dijon mustard to cover the whole thing.


I laid the slices of deli ham over the mustard coated pastry, making sure to cover the entire rectangle.


Next I sprinkled the grated cheese over top of the ham. I used an old cheese. (Sorry about this terrible photo)


And then started to roll it up, cinnamon roll style.



Then I cut it into about 1 inch slices and placed it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.


And baked them at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until the pastry was done and they were nicely browned.

I let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes before removing them to a plate to finish cooling so I could bag and freeze them.
