How to make Spinach Feta Pinwheels

Step 1: Combine the egg and water until well mixed. Set aside.

Step 2: Whisk the cheeses, onion, and seasonings. Set aside.

Step 3: On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry out and flatten the seams. With the egg wash, brush the surface of the pastry.

Step 8: When ready to bake, place the pinwheels in the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden.
