Party Pinwheels

I had never made pinwheels before but they'll become a staple appetizer from now on! They're super easy, extremely versatile and impressive visually. A lot better than a bowl of peanuts!

You can spread puff pastr with almost everything but for my first pinwheels, I wanted something a bit special. I went for "pestonade", an interesting mix between pesto and tapenade.

Pestonade Pinwheels

For 1 cup pestonade (20-25 pinwheels)

2 rolls frozen puff pastry
1 cup unpitted green olives
3 CS olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 CS lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 CS powdered almonds
2 CS mascarpone
2 CS parmesan cheese
Salt, pepper

Unthaw puff pastry.
Mix all ingredients in a blender until you get a homogeneous paste.
Spread evenly on puff pastry sheets, roll and cut into bite-size pinwheels.
Cook in the pre-heated oven (180┬░) for 20-30 minutes.

I also made some with tomato sauce and grated cheese:
