Dessert Pinwheels

Dessert Pinwheels

Hi there!

Ever make something and end up with leftover pastry dough? Same here. I don’t like wasting ingredients, so I decided to turn it into a dessert. This is a quick recipe, and only uses a few ingredients.

Since this was made using leftovers/scraps of pastry dough, I’m not going to include measurements. Just add the ingredients as you see fit!


  • Leftover pastry dough
  • Flour
  • Butter (room temperature is best)
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar

Let’s Bake!

  1. Gather all of the leftover pastry dough and ball it up. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Add some flour to a cutting board or counter and place the ball of dough down. Roll out with a rolling pin until it’s even and about 1/4 inch thick. Add more flour if the dough is sticking.
  3. Spread a thick layer of butter on the pastry dough and then drizzle chocolate syrup over that.
  4. Sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar over the chocolate syrup layer.
  5. Roll the pastry dough, starting from the bottom. Once rolled, cut into 1 inch pieces.
  6. Place onto a greased baking sheet and sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar over the top. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!

There you have it! Little dessert pinwheels.
