Proscuitto, Fig, and Cheese Pinwheel Appetizer

This is one of the favorite recipes that I created.  They’re easy to make, there aren’t many ingredients, and everyone who tries these gooey sweet-n-salty delights loves them!  15 minutes prep time, 20 minutes cook time.  Makes about 16.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup softened cream cheese (I like to use whipped)
  • 1/3 cup fig preserves
  • 1 package (4 ounces) proscuitto
  • 1 1/2 cups parmesan (using a mix of parmesan and mozzarella is good too)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 420 degrees
  2. Roll or spread out puff pastry onto a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper or tin foil for easy clean up – sprayed with non-stick if you want).
  3. Melt the cream cheese in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften it and then spread it on the puff pastry
  4. Layer the proscuitto, fig preserves, and shredded cheese
  5. Roll it up and cut into 1 inch slices
  6. Lay them out on the pan and bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is puffy
  7. Eat your heart out
