Leftover Pastry Pinwheels

4.5 from 2 reviews

These little pinwheels are the perfect way to use up pastry scraps from another recipe. They are filled with a buttery mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon; add nuts or raisins if desired.



  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out pastry scraps on a lightly floured surface (to make a rectangle).
  3. Cover the pastry with butter and then sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar and cinnamon, spreading evenly. Either cut pastry into strips and individually roll up pastry, pinching the ends or roll the entire pastry into a log and slice into pinwheels.
  4. Place pinwheels onto your prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until pastry is starting to brown.
  6. Let cool completely cool before enjoying.


Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
