Finnish Pinwheels

  • RECIPE MAKES: 12 pinwheels
  • PREP TIME: 1 hour
  • COOK TIME: 15 minutes
step 1

Preheat oven to 190°C/170°C fan/Gas mark 5.

step 2

Rub the Fate low protein all-purpose mix and the margarine together in a mixing bowl until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

step 3

Mix the sugar into the water until dissolved and combine with the Fate mixture.

step 4

Leave to rest for 10 minutes.

step 5

Dust a clean work surface with Fate low protein all-purpose mix and knead the pastry for a minute on the work surface until smooth.

step 6

Using a rolling pin, roll the pastry out between two pieces of grease proof paper, to form a 28cm square and cut into 12 x 6cm squares.

step 7

In a separate bowl, mix the prunes, dried fruits, sugar and cinnamon.

step 8

Place 1 tsp of the filling into the centre of the squares.

step 9

Cut a line from each corner to the edge of the filling. Do not cut through the entire square.

step 10

The lines should leave you with a square made up of 4 triangles. Lift the bottom right hand corner of each triangle and press on top of the mixture to form a pinwheel shape. 

step 11

Brush with ProZero and place on a lined baking tray.

step 12

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
