I had tasted pinwheels in one of my friend’s house long back and totally forgot about it, but the taste was always in my mind. Pinwheels are an appetiser that can be modified the way we want according to our tastes.
Usually when I buy puff pastry sheets I make puffs with different stuffing, this time I decided I will make something different and I wanted to search on the net , but then I decided against searching on the net and to try my own version with whatever I can remember from the last time ate in my friends place.
