Pesto Puff Pastry Pinwheels | Delish D'Lites

Have you ever been surprised by impromptu guests? I always like having a few recipes up my sleeve that can be whipped up in no time. These pesto puff pastry pinwheels are a perfect example. With a little help from some pantry staples, I’m always prepared for last minute guests.  My pesto puff pastry pinwheels are super festive, and SUPER easy!  They’re so simple to put together, and wonderfully cheesy.

I love filling these pesto pinwheels with basil and sundried tomato pesto, just because they’re green and red, AKA perfect for the holidays.  These pinwheels look so complicated to make, and taste elegant.  They’re also perfect to serve warm or at room temperature, and you can even assemble them ahead of time and then just bake them off when you’re ready!  Make ahead appetizers that will wow your guests…I’d say that’s a recipe for stress-free holiday entertaining.
