Recipe: Last Minute New Year’s Puff Pastries

If you’re in need of a last minute appetizer for your New Year’s Eve party or you need something to take to a party, try these easy Ham & Cheese Pinwheels.


1 sheet store-bought puff pastry
2 tbsp (30 ml) sweet and spicy mustard (or Dijon or honey mustard works well too)
7-8 slices of deli ham
½ cup (60 g) of grated Asiago Cheese
1 tbsp of dried basil


Preheat oven to 425F (218 C).

Roll out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Spread entire surface with mustard. Lay ham in a single layer on top covering the entire surface of the sheet. Sprinkle cheese on top of the ham, covering the entire surface. Sprinkle basil on top of the cheese.

Starting at one end, roll the pastry and its contents, into a neat log. Transfer to parchment paper (or wax paper), seal the ends and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Remove log from the paper, slice into ½ inch (13 mm) slices, place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 13 mins.

Serve with a glass of your favorite champagne! Enjoy!
