  • Allow the pastry to warm to room temperature
  • Roll out the pastry sheet onto an even surface and spread the cream cheese evenly across
  • Sprinkle the garlic powder, dried parsley and vegan pancetta with a pinch of cracked black pepper
  • Roll lengthways to make a long sausage shape then using a sharp knife, half, half again and repeat until you have around 12 pinwheels
  • Place the rolls on the baking tray on the greaseproof paper (that coats the puff pastry) then brush with the tamari to create a beautiful glaze (2tbsp should be enough to lightly cover all of the pinwheels)
