Prosciutto Parmesan Pinwheels

Puff pastry from the freezer section makes these tasty appetizers a snap to assemble. The golden-brown pinwheels get their fabulous flavor from prosciutto, Dijon mustard and Parmesan cheese.—Virginia Galloway, Houston, Texas

    I made this recipe exactly and it turned out dry and brittle. One bite and they exploded like fireworks! They also did not get golden and puffy but looked just like they did when I put them in the oven. If I try this again I'll try brushing the pastry with egg or butter. In addition, to cut down on the salt factor I will try a different type of cheese.

    We found these too salty for our taste. Would not make again.

    This was the 1st time I worked with Prosciutto and it was very expensive and I didn't like the saltiness. I thought the puff pastry was hard to slice and keep together. No one at our New Years Eve party cared for them. This was a costly experiment.
