Vanillian Diet #4: Eggless Cheesy Pinwheels!

Hey Guys!
Vanilla Here.

Its not been too long as I decided to abandon my homework to write this post. A lot has been happening and I am extremely grateful for you all.

If you have not followed me on Snapchat yet (username is at the end of this post), I have recently hit more than a 1000 page views for VD which is crazy! I am really happy that people from different regions of the countries are looking at my blog and hopefully enjoying it. I do urge you guys to not be a stranger and follow me on social media sites if you want to know how I look like and please do subscribe and comment.

I do not even want to continue on explaining my posts' timings because honestly I am a busy woman and I have so many other things that always grabs me. Even though at this point I have so much to do I do not want to have zero posts for this month so definitely I will be trying to do something about it. If you guys really want me to speed up, please comment because it does make me happy and I will put in more effort.

Onto the real deal. I love cheese. Everybody loves cheese in general. So my original plan was to make some pizza pinwheels which failed terribly because I had no pizza sauce. I decided it was awesome to just have cheese because CHEESE! *remembers fond memories with cheese*

This is once again a super easy, eggless and vegetarian friendly recipe. If you want to make it vegan, feel free to substitute the butter with coconut oil and the cheese with any vegan cheese.

    Ingredients Required:

    For Flavored Pastry:

    1. 1.25 cups plain/all purpose flour

    2. 0.5 cup butter [Vegan: Coconut oil]

    3. Nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder and dried parsley flakes

    4. Approx. 1/3 cup cold water

    For the Filling:

    1. CHEESE (you can never go wrong with chees) [substitute for vegan cheese if going vegan]

    2. Black Olives (chopped and pitted)

    Paraphernalia/ Equipment Required:

    1. Large bowls

    2. Rolling pin

    3. Oven

    4. Cling wrap

    5. A surface to roll on (that sounds hilarious but yeah..)

    6. Refrigerator (huh? you might say)


    1. For the puff pastry, rub in salted butter (or coconut oil with a pinch of salt) into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs consistency

    2. Add in the spices and dried parsley flakes

    3. Mix the dry mixture slowly while adding in the cold water and kneading it into a dough.

    4. Once it barely forms into a ball of dough, smoothen into a disc and wrap tightly in cling foil.

    5. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    6. Once chilled, roll it into 0.5cm thickness and slab over all that delicious cheese.

    7. Press the cheese into the dough if needed. (Vanilla Note: Remember to work fast as the longer you take with the dough, the stickier and more difficult the dough gets as the butter will start melting.)

    8. Add in olives or any other vegetable (or even cured deli meat) if you want and start rolling it like a log/ cinnamon roll or whatever you want to imagine as.

    9.Slice into 1.5cm slices and place flat on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

    10. Bake at 180 d.c for 10 minutes

    I hope you guys enjoy making (and eating it)! See, once you read the instructions, you realize it is extremely easy to make them! Like seriously, even a person using the oven for the first time can do it, You can make it a group project and do it with friends or your children! Please comment and pin this post to voice out yourselves! Until next time, keep your ice cream cones dripping!
