  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unfold the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll out gently to flatten any creases.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and black pepper. Stir until well combined.
  4. Spread the ricotta cheese mixture evenly over the puff pastry dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge.
  5. Brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg yolk.
  6. Starting from the long end, roll up the puff pastry dough tightly into a log.
  7. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 1-inch slices.
  8. Carefully stand each pinwheel slice on its end on the prepared baking sheet, forming a cup shape. Brush the tops of the pinwheels with the remaining egg yolk.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown and flaky.
