Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

Flour, for sprinkling
1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
3 heaping teaspoons dijon mustard
12 slices good quality ham
1 cup grated gruyere cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry until it’s thin and about 15 inches wide.
  2. Spread the mustard liberally across the top of the puff pastry leaving a one-inch border on all sides.
  3. Top with the ham slices and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Starting with the end closest to you, carefully roll the puff pastry up over the ham and cheese to create a pinwheel.
  5. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least half an hour and up to one day.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Alternately, spray with cooking spray or rub with oil.
  7. Remove the plastic wrap from the pinwheels and slice with a sharp knife into 1/4-inch slices. Place each slice on its side on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden. Enjoy immediately.

Makes about 30 pinwheels.
