Recipes - Fruit Mince Pinwheels

Pinwheels have turned into my quick to whip up, throw anything in, entertaining solution.  So when I was left with a abundance of fruit mine, I decided to chuck on a few batches of fruit mince pinwheels to see if it would work.  And yes, yes it does.

3/4 cup fruit mince
3 tbs jam (I used raspberry, but use whatever you like or have)
3 sheets frozen puff pastry
icing sugar, to dust

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 230°C.  Line a large, shallow baking tray with baking paper
Step 2Set puff pastry on a flat surface to thaw.  Pastry should thaw to the point that it is malleable but not much further as the pastry is difficult to work with as it begins to warm.
Step 3 - Remembering to remove plastic backing from pastry, spread 1 tbs jam evenly over each pastry sheet, leaving a 1cm border at top.  Distribute fruit mince over jam.
Step 4 - Roll each pastry sheet into a firm sausage shape and cut about 10 rounds from each sheet.  
Step 5 - Place each round, cut side down, on baking tray leaving some space between each and bake for 18-20 minutes, until golden.
Step 6 - Dust with icing sugar and serve.


Pinwheels can be made to the end of step 5 and frozen for up to one month.  Continue from step 6 when needed, without thawing rolls.
