How to Make the Filling for Spinach and Artichoke Puff Pastry Swirls
Start by setting out the cream cheese to room temp. Add in sour cream and mix until well combined.
Add in your spices, finely chopped artichoke hearts, and finally your thawed and drained frozen spinach. Mix until it is all yummy and combined.
Using a rolling pin and a floured surface, rollout a thawed puff pasty (I love the Pepperidge Farm kind - you can find it in the freezer section of your grocery. Usually next to the frozen rolls and pie crust) sheet till it is doubled in size. Spread your spinach and artichoke mixture out evenly over the surface making sure to get all the way to the edge.
Begin to tightly roll up (hot dog shape), making sure to keep the roll as tight as possible.
Place on a baking tray and freeze for 30 minutes or until solid.
Slice into even slices and place on a baking tray. Brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place in the oven and waaalaaa, your Spinach and Artichoke Swirls are warm and perfect to hold in each hand!
How Can I Freeze Spinach and Artichoke Puff Pastry Swirls?
This appetizer is perfect to make ahead of time! Make according to directions below all the way up until baking.
You will want to tightly roll the puff pastry, place in freeze for 30 minute until solid.
Take out and cut like you are going to bake, but line up all the slices on a baking sheet. Place in freezer again for 10 minutes or until form and solid again.
Store in a freezer safe zip top bag or on the baking sheet wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or foil - making sure no air can get to them.
Keep in the freezer for up to a month.
Once ready to bake, just follow the recipe as normal.
Isn't it the best being able to prep ahead so all you have to do is pop in the oven and you're good to go?! I know I love it.
