Apple and Blue Cheese Pinwheels


  • ¼ cup Frigo® Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • ¼ cup fig jam, or substitute orange marmalade
  • ¼ cup apple, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnut
  • 2 tablespoons crispy bacon, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh sage, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) box puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a small bowl, gently toss together the Frigo® Crumbled Blue Cheese, fig jam, apple, chopped walnut, bacon, fresh sage and fresh ground black pepper until all ingredients are evenly coated in jam.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place one sheet of puff pasty on each baking sheet. Then, cut each sheet of puff pastry into nine individual squares, each about 3x3 inches. For each square, use a paring knife to cut from each corner toward the center, stopping 1 inch from the center. You will have a 1-inch circle in the center of each square and all the corners will be cut in half.

Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese mixture onto the center of each square. For each square, lift one half of a corner and fold it toward the center of the square, gently pushing the point into the blue cheese mixture. Continuing around the square, fold the other halves of corners (three more corners) toward the center of the square, and gently press all four tips together to form a pinwheel shape.

Brush the dough with the beaten egg and bake until the dough is golden brown, 17-20 minutes.

Serve warm.

Rad Tip: Brushing your dough with egg before baking ensures you get a delicious golden brown crust, turning your pastry dish into an eye-catching and taste-bud-pleasing treat!
