Prosciutto and Gruyere Pinwheels

This recipe consists of three of my favorite foods- Puff Pastry, Prosciutto, and Gruyere Cheese. The perfect combo for a mouth watering appetizer. I think you could probably substitute any meat or cheese if you don’t like Prosciutto or Gruyere, but trust me they really are the perfect combo. I doubled this recipe and there was not one pinwheel left over. Bon Appetit!




PROSCIUTTO AND GRUYERE PINWHEELS

INGREDIENTS

1 SHEET PUFF PASTRY THAWED
4 OUNCES THINLY SLICED PROSCIUTTO
2 TABLESPOONS CHOPPED FRESH BASIL

SPRINKLE THE BASIL, THEN HALF THE GRUYERE CHEESE, AGAIN LEAVING THE 1/2 INCH BORDER ON THE LONG EDGE. BRUSH THE PLAIN BORDER WITH EGG. ROLL, STARTING WITH THE OPPOSITE EDGE OF THE BORDER. SEAL BORDER EDGE AND ROLL IN PLASTIC WRAP. REPEAT WITH SECOND HALF OF PASTRY. REFRIGERATE FOR 3 HOURS OR UP TO 2 DAYS. ARRANGE 1/2 INCH SLICES ON PREPARED COOKIE SHEET.
