Anchovy Pinwheels

Yield 6 dozen


  • 1 (2-ounce) can anchovies, drained and minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 (17 1/4-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  1. Combine anchovies and next 4 ingredients; mix well, and set aside.

  2. Roll each pastry sheet into a 12-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry into 72 (2-inch) squares. For each square, cut a slit from each corner to within 1/4 inch of center.

  3. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon anchovy mixture into center of each square. Fold every other tip of slits toward center. (Tips will meet in center to form a pinwheel.) Press to seal.

  4. Combine yolk and 1 tablespoon water. Brush pinwheels with egg mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 375° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
