Spanakopita Pinwheels

I'm enthralled with spanakopita, and this spinach and feta pinwheel recipe was a quick and easy way to enjoy it. I have used this for teacher get-togethers and family events. —Ryan Palmer, Windham, Maine

    This was a great app that I served to guests. It took minimal time to put together and was fun to eat.

    I kind find puff pastry big enough to roll up as pinwheels so I just bake one flat like a pizza; then, I cut in in half for my mom and me. We enjoy it. Easy, healthy and delicious!

    I usually make spanakopita with phyllo dough, but I had some puff pastry to use up. This recipe was definitely super tasty, and it was a lot easier using this method. This recipe also makes a decent number of appetizers, which is perfect because I love hosting appy nights over the holidays. I think this recipe just made my prep a lot easier!

    Dec 21, 2016 good!!! I have always loved spanakopita, but working with phyllo dough intimidated me! Puff pastry is so much easier. I made these for a get together recently, and everyone loved them. Will be making them for all of my holiday get together this year!!!
