    1 x pack 375g ready rolled puff pastry

    90g jam – raspberry, strawberry or apricot

    1 x medium egg yolk – whisked

    25g granulated sugar 


    Unroll the pastry and cut into 6 x 10 cm squares.

    Using a sharp knife, make a 4cm diagonal cut in all four corners of each square, cutting towards the centre.

    To form the pinwheels, fold every other point of puff pastry toward the centre – pressing down gently until they stick.

    Brush the pinwheels with egg wash and sprinkle over the granulated sugar.

    Put a teaspoon of your chosen jam in the centre of each, place on a baking sheet.

    Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and risen.
