These are not only easy but quick to put together of course except the thawing time that is required for the puff pastry. I didn't even had to wait impatiently for the pastry to get thaw. I was at the nail spa and I called my husband to take the pastry out of the freezer and by the time I got home it was nicely thawed and all I had to do is put stuff together, fill, roll and bake.
Try out this recipe and you can bake these at your next party and you don't have to tell anyone that how easy these are to make. Make these and flaunt your baking skills :)
Here is the recipe (Click here for the printable version)
1 puff pastry sheet (thawed per package instructions)
2 cups chopped spinach ( make sure the spinach is well-drained)
1 cups shredded cheese ( I used cheddar jack)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp red crushed pepper (or per taste)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp basil flakes
some garlic salt (per taste)
some all purpose flour ( to roll out the puff pastry sheet)
1 tbsp milk + 1 tbsp melted butter
1.In a bowl, toss together the spinach, shredded cheese, 1/2 tbsp olive olive, Italian seasoning, red pepper, basil flakes and garlic salt. Mix lightly using a spatula.
2. On a clean surface, sprinkle some all purpose flour and roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet.
3. Brush the inside of the pastry sheet with some olive oil. Spread the spinach cheese mixture evenly on the sheet.
4. Starting from the shorter side, roll the pastry sheet tightly and carefully like a jelly roll.
5. Using a serrated knife, cut the roll into circles and arrange on a baking sheet, cut side down.
6. Brush the cut circles with the milk and melted butter mixture and bake in a pre-heated 425 degree F oven for about 18-20 minutes.
That's it! Isn't it simple? Enjoy the warm appetizers with tea, coffee or your favorite wine.
