  • 1 pkg. (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tsp. onion powder

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

  • 1 pkg. (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained

  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Stir the mayonnaise, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, spinach and artichoke hearts in a medium bowl.

  2. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Spread half the spinach mixture on the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge. Roll up like a jelly roll.  Press the seam to seal.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

  3. Cut each roll into 20 (1/2-inch) slices, making 40 in all.  Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 3 baking sheets.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.

"I suggest that you freeze the roll to make cutting easier."

"I thought these were alright. I am picky though. They were pretty easy. I had a little trouble rolling out the 2nd sheet. I would recommend keeping it in the fridge while you prepare and cut the first one."

"After overcoming the "rolling out" of the pastry problems, which I have yet to master, the recipe is exceptionally easy! And once prepared, I could not get to the table before being devoured by my party guests!"
