Apple Strudel Pinwheels

Here’s a great recipe for Breakfast Christmas morning!  Frozen puff pastry is such a great product and just takes any dish to the next level.  Obviously these classic flavors go perfectly together, you just can’t go wrong with apples and cinnamon.  I also like that the apples retain their shape and don’t become absolute mush.  These pinwheels have amazing flavor and great texture!

2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and diced, about 2 cups
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbsp butter, cut into tiny pieces
1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheet, thawed

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together the sugar, flour, and spices.

Add in the diced apples and the butter and mix well.  

Roll out the puff pastry sheet to about a 15×10 inch rectangle.

Position the dough with the long edge towards you.  Dip your fingers in a small bowl of water and gently brush a thin layer of water over the surface of the dough.


Pour the apple mixture evenly over the dough.  On the long sides leave about 1-2 inch of dough showing.  On the short sides, spread the apple mixture right to the edge.

Take a long side of the dough and gently roll into a log.


Use a serated knife and slice the dough into 12 even slices.

Place the pinwheels cut side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment.  

Bake for 20-25 ninutes until golden brown.  Transfer the pinwheels to a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes.
