Maple Pecan Pinwheels

Maple Pecan Pinwheels


These maple pecan breakfast pinwheels are the easiest, tastiest morsels ever and you can totally pretend to be the ultimate domestic goddess, drowning in compliments while you gush about your handmade pastries.


  • 1 sheet of ready rolled all butter puff pastry
  • 150g pecan nuts
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 3tbsp maple syrup
  • 25g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, beaten with a little milk
  • 50g apricot jam
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 3tbsp water
  • 1/2tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a food processor pulse the pecans until finely chopped, you can also do this by hand just ensure the pieces are nice and fine. Pour the nuts into a bowl and mix with the brown sugar, vanilla extract, maple syrup and melted butter, set aside while you prepare your pastry.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175C and line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  3. Unroll your chilled pastry and cut into six equal squares. Transfer your squares to the baking sheets, leaving room between each square. To shape the pinwheels cut a line from each corner of the square to almost the middle, leaving around a 3cm space uncut. Put a tablespoon of the pecan mixture into the center of each square before folding alternate corners into the middle of the pastry and pressing down. Make sure you work quickly as the dough becomes harder to work with the warmer it gets, the best way to combat this is to keep one tray in the fridge while working on the other.
  4. Brush each pastry with the beaten egg and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool slightly.
  5. While cooling make your glaze. In a small saucepan heat the apricot jam with 2tbsp of water until runny. Combine the icing sugar and water until smooth and transfer to a piping bag, snip the end to make a small hole. Brush each pastry with the sticky glaze before drizzling with the icing.

    I have just used this recipe, in the ingredients list you have dark brown sugar and vanilla extract that I have weighed out but can’t see what point in the method you use these ingredients?

      Hi Joey,

      I’ve just updated the recipe! You add the sugar and vanilla to the nut mixture with the maple syrup.

      Thanks for alerting me to this!

      Katie xoxo
