Spinach and Cheese Pinwheels

I guess you don´t want any more cakes and you´re looking for something savory and small to make for New Year´s Eve. I like the best savory appetizers made with puff pastry since it is very variable and when you buy an already rolled out puff pastry, appetizers are prepared in a minute. This time, I combined a puff pastry with cheese and fresh spinach and made Spinach and Cheese Pinwheels. You don´t need many ingredients to make them and they´re prepared and baked very quickly. The amount of garlic is up to you since I don´t like it very much, I used only a bit, just the right amount so even the people who don´t like garlic could eat it. Then, I also used fresh spinach because I don´t like the frozen one and besides traditional semi-hard cheese, you will need also cream cheese. Thanks to cream cheese filling, pinwheels are creamy and not dry. Creamy filling and crispy pastry are a great match and pinwheels will look amazing on you New Year´s Eve dinner table.
