Nutritional Benefits

  1. High in fiber: Buddy’s mince pie pinwheels are made with whole wheat flour, which is rich in fiber. Fiber helps to promote healthy digestion and can aid in weight management.
  2. Good source of antioxidants: The mincemeat filling in these pinwheels contains dried fruits like raisins and currants, which are packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants help to protect the body against oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
  3. Provides essential vitamins and minerals: The combination of dried fruits and spices in the mincemeat filling provides a good amount of vitamins and minerals. For example, raisins are a great source of iron and potassium, while cinnamon adds a dose of calcium and manganese.
  4. Contains healthy fats: These pinwheels are made with butter, which provides healthy fats that are essential for proper brain function and hormone production. However, it is important to consume them in moderation due to their high calorie content.
  5. Moderate sugar content: While Buddy’s mince pie pinwheels do contain sugar in the form of dried fruits and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, they are not overly sweet. This makes them a better choice compared to other sugary desserts.


  1. 1 sheet of ready-made puff pastry
  2. 1/2 cup mincemeat filling (store-bought or homemade)
  3. 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  4. 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (optional)

Processing Steps

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out the pastry: Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface to a rectangular shape.
  3. Spread the mincemeat: Spread the mincemeat filling evenly over the pastry, leaving a small border around the edges.
  4. Roll and slice: Starting from one of the long sides, tightly roll the pastry into a log. Slice the log into 1-inch thick pinwheels.
  5. Bake: Place the pinwheels onto the prepared baking sheet and brush them with melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and puffed.
  6. Cool and sprinkle: Allow the pinwheels to cool slightly, then dust them with powdered sugar if desired. Serve and enjoy!
