Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 1 package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets)
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 oz fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Thaw the puff pastry sheets as instructed on the package. Peel and mince the garlic and roughly chop the spinach.
  2. In a pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add spinach and stir together. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted. Remove lid and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing any excess water to evaporate. Once the excess water has evaporated, remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the ricotta, parmesan, and spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Lay the puff pastry sheets on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Using a rotary pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut one of the sheets in half, so you now have 1 full-sized sheet and 2 half-sized sheets.
  5. In a small bowl, mix egg and water to create an egg wash. Brush the surface of each pastry sheet with the egg wash. Using a spoon or spatula, spread the spinach and cheese mixture on top in an even layer. Leave about an inch of empty space at the top of each sheet.
  6. Starting at the wide end, tightly roll up each sheet. The empty inch of pastry at the top of each sheet will help the roll stick together. Once all three sheets are rolled, you should have one larger log and two smaller ones. Wrap each in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least an hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 400° F. Remove logs from the refrigerator and slice into 1/2-inch slices. On a baking sheet covered in parchment paper, lay out each of the slices. Arrange one slice from the large log with two slices from the smaller logs, so that they form a Mickey Mouse silhouette. Pinch the touching edges of pastry together so they stick together.
  8. Brush the top of each Mickey pinwheel with egg wash. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned and puffed up. Serve warm and enjoy!
