I know we're really not suppose to relate food to emotional comfort.
But these little things equal pop-in-your-mouth-happiness.
Savory, buttery happiness.
And, just because it's time for a blogging reality check, let me zoom out a little for ya.
See? These make you happy!
Freeze some to easily enjoy at a later date.
Makes 48 1/2-inch pieces
1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed (I used Pepperidge Farm)
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (packed) fresh spinach, chopped
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Using a sturdy wooden spoon in a medium bowl, mix together the bacon, cream cheese, spinach, chives, sage, garlic powder and pepper. Stir in cheeses.
Lay the thawed pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface (like a cutting board). Spread the cheese/bacon mixture evenly over the pastry. Beginning with the end nearest you, roll up the pastry in a direction away from yourself.
Slightly stretch the roll out (gently tug the ends). Using a serrated knife, slice the roll into 1/2-thick pieces.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and place the pinwheels about an inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
(To freeze: freeze pinwheels on a baking sheet. Once frozen, transfer pinwheels to a freezer storage bag (Zip-Lock). To reheat, bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.)
