Fruit Filled Puff Pastry Pinwheels

These delightful treats are as eye catching as is a pinwheel in the breeze. Not only are they pleasing to the eye, but are more pleasing to the palette. Once you make one kind you will hopefully be hooked and try to create many different versions with various fruits. Featured are only three of the many we have created. If you want to make one version see Raspberry Filled Puff Pastry Pinwheels, Blackberry Filled Puff Pastry Pinwheels or Mango Filled Puff Pastry Pinwheels. Mascarpone cheese is highly recommended, but if your grocery store does not have it you can use plain cream cheese instead. Please refer to my technique for a step by step process Creating Puff Pastry Pinwheels.  Makes 6 of pinwheel.

Ingredients

1 package of Pepperidge Farm brand Puff Pastry
1 Mango peeled and cut see How to Cut a Mango if needed
A sprinkle of kosher salt
Juice of half of a lime
12 raspberries
6 blackberries
1 container of Mascarpone cheese
Non-stick cooking spray
A drizzle of honey

Technique

In a small mixing bowl combine diced mango, salt and lime juice and set aside. Remove dough from package and place on parchment paper or a floured surface. Once dough has thawed enough to unfold, do so. Other wise it will end up sticky and difficult to unroll. Cut each sheet into 9 squares. Place each square onto a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cookie spray. Then cut into each corner of each square about 1 1/2 inches. Place a teaspoon of mascarpone cheese and mango mixture into 6 of the puff pastry squares. For the next 6 squares add a teaspoon of mascarpone cheese and 1 blackberry to each of those squares. Then to the last 6 add a teaspoon of mascarpone cheese and 2 raspberries. Once all are filled, create the pinwheel. Take every other cut corner to the center of the square, pinch tightly to secure dough in that shape. It should look like a pinwheel. Place into a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes, or until puff pastry is puffed and browned. Remove and drizzle with honey.
