Puffy Parmesan Pinwheels

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Katie Hums

This is a great hors d'oeuvre that I found in a Cosmopolitan holiday entertaining guide. My party guests loved them. I recommend using Hungarian paprika as it has better flavor.

I love the versatility of this recipe. I used the 'pinwheel' idea and made so many variations - so delicious, impressive and easy. I made some with Chinese BBQ pork, some with basil pesto and parmesan. I brushed the pinwheels with egg glaze and sprinkle with more parmesan before baking. These can be made ahead into rolls and frozen a week ahead; just slice and bake before serving. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
