How to make it

Cheddar Pin Wheels are great as party appetisers or as snacks, and they are simple to make and can even be frozen so that you can throw them in the oven when unexpected guests turn up.

  • Make your life simple and use ready-rolled puff pastry. Ensure it’s been left at room temperature for an hour (or fully defrosted)
  • Unroll the sheet onto a work surface and roll into a rectangle
  • Smear the dough with a light layer of mustard (optional)
  • Add the ham slices
  • Cover with the grated Westcombe Cheddar
  • Roll the pastry into a log and trim the ends so they are even
  • Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C Fan / 375°F / Gas Mark 6
  • Once chilled, remove and cut into slices
  • place the slices on their side on a lined baking sheet – spiral-side up
  • Sprinkle a few pine nuts over each
  • Bake for about 18 minutes

If you are making these Cheddar Pin Wheels to freeze then once you’ve cut the slices, re-wrap and place in a sealed bag. Then bake at 180°C Fan for around 25-30 minutes.
