Parmesan Scallion Pinwheels

These were a hit at my parents' house on Christmas night. You should make them for your New Year's Eve soiree....

Parmesan Scallion Pinwheels
From Real Simple.
Makes about 20 appetizers.

1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.25-ounce box), thawed
1 large egg, beaten
3 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan (1 1⁄2 ounces)
kosher salt and black pepper

Heat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or your trusty Silpat.

Unfold the pastry and brush with the egg. Sprinkle with the scallions, ¼ cup of the Parmesan, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Roll tightly into a log. Freeze until firm but still sliceable, about 20 minutes.

Slice the log into ¼-inch-thick rounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
