An after school treat on a winters afternoon? Easy done!
Puff pastry pin wheels have always been a firm favourite of my boys.
The basic recipe is Puff pasty, Vegemite (or promite) and grated cheese.
First step is to pre-heat the oven to about 210-220c.
Take a sheet of Puff out of the freezer and give it 5 minutes or so to thaw out a touch. Spread with a goodly amount of Vegemite and sprinkle with a handful or two of cheese.
Roll the pasty to form a "log", being careful not to roll too "tight" - you need to give the pastry some room to puff out.
Cut into wheels - a sharp knife is best for this job, as the pasty can get a little "grabby" as it softens up. You should get between 12 & 14 wheels per sheet of pastry.
Space out on a baking tray and then into the oven until until puffed and golden - usually about 7 to 10 mins depending on your oven.
Alternative spreads that work well include pesto, sweet chilly and even jam!
They are also handy for lunch boxes......if you have any left over! xE
