Tonight, we will sit by the fire, welcome friends to our home, and carry plates of food into the living room.

I’ll set out delicious appetizers, like these Pear Gorgonzola Puff Pastry Pinwheels and munchies on our side table, to be enjoyed by all.

One thing I love about casual holiday entertaining is it takes the pressure off of all the details that would normally go into a dinner party.

Our friends at DeLallo make it so easy, too, with their SaladSavors® and olives and specialty foods, to put out a spread like this! Foods like olives, antipasti, bruschetta, tapenade & spread, and packaged olives!

Pinwheels can be prepped and refrigerated several days ahead (leave in a roll; wrap the roll in the wax paper and refrigerate). Slice, bake and serve on the same day.

  • 1 SaladSavors package (Gorgonzola, dried pear, toasted almonds)
  • 1/4 cup honey

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lay a piece of puff pastry on a floured work surface and roll slightly to remove the fold lines. Spread with honey.
  3. Sprinkle the DeLallo mixture over the puff pastry sheet.
  4. Roll tightly; brush the center fold of both puff pastry rolls with a beaten egg.
  5. Carefully slice each roll into 1/2-inch slices and lay them flat on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden; serve!
