A handful of peanut butter and jelly pinwheels on a table.

Peanut Butter Puff Pastry Pinwheels

These Peanut Butter and Jelly Puff Pastry Pinwheels were a perfect start to our day! The kids love peanut butter toast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and cinnamon rolls, so I figured these had to be a hit. Uh, yeah. You could say that.

  • 1 large sheet puff pastry thawed but cool
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam or jelly
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 12 count muffin pan very well with non-stick spray. You'll only need 8 cavities. Set aside.
  • Lightly sprinkle your work surface with flour and lay your puff pastry. Lightly press together the seams, if needed, to form a solid sheet of pastry. Spread the peanut butter evenly over the pastry, allowing for 1/2 inch margins from the edges. Dollop and spread jam evenly over the peanut butter.
  • Roll up the pastry into a log shape and slice into 8 pieces, about 1 inch thick.
  • Carefully transfer the pieces to the muffin pan, placing one piece per cavity.
  • Crack an egg into a small bowl, beat with a fork, and liberally egg wash each of the pinwheels. You'll use about half of the egg.
  • Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir to combine. Sprinkle it over the top of each pinwheel evenly.
  • Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until pinwheels have just begun to puff and brown. Keep a watchful eye on them as they can quickly go from underdone to burnt.
  • Allow pinwheels to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing them. Run a knife around the edges to dislodge them if they're stuck to the pan. Serve immediately.
