The ham and cheese pinwheels can be served in parties and as dinner in your home.

Ingredients needed:

  • Frozen puff pastry (two sheets) – they should be thawed for long hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Dijon mustard (3 table spoons) – they should be divided
  • Thin slices of good quality deli ham (12) (10 oz.)

  • Fresh parsley (chopped)
  • Thyme or chives for serving (this is optional)

Directions to follow:

Place plastic wrap on the counter, a very larger sheet.

Unfold the puff pastry into the center of the plastic, then roll it into a rectangle of 10 by 12 inches.

Spread it with one and a half of a table spoon of mustard, leave a half of an inch space on all sides. Sprinkle a cup of cheese on them.

Roll off the pastry into a log, starting at the edge. Make the ends even, use the plastic wrap to wrap the log tightly.

Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Do the process again with another sheet of puff pastry and the remaining mustard, ham and cheese.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with silicon baking mat.

After the log is chilled, use a sharp knife to cut the logs into wide slices of half an inch. If the logs are 12 inches, you would cut them into 24 rolls.

Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheets, one inch apart. Bake them for about eighteen minutes, until the puff pastry is light golden brown and the cheese is hot

Sprinkle them with chopped thyme and parsley.

Let it cool, then serve.
