  • 1/4 tsp  paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish & juice

  • In a bowl mix together all of the ingredients except for the puff pastry.

  • Starting at the side closest to you, roll the pastry up like a jelly roll. Place the roll of pastry back in the fridge for a minimum of about 5 minutes so it can have a quick chill. Remove and slice into 3/4 - 1-inch pinwheels. 
  • Place pinwheels a couple inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 15 - 18 minutes or until they are golden brown.
