Sweet and Spicy Spirals

When ever I make cranberry chutney this is another effortless recipe which is always a big hit  at the parties. As this is not that spicy (HOT spicy) you can enjoy this with your  kids also. My 2 year old enjoyed this a lot this year.

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry - 1 packet ( 2 sheets)
Cranberry Chutney
Egg - 1
Water - 1 Tbs

1. Thaw the pastry sheets according to the directions.
2. Mix the egg with water in a small bowl.
3. Once the pastry sheets are thawed and even them out rolling with rolling pin gently for 2 times.
4. Brush the sheet with egg wash, this helps the spirals to be bound while baking.
5. Spread the Cranberry Chutney evenly on the entire sheet
6. Roll the sheet from one edge and at the end it looks like a log.
7. Carefully cut the log into (1/2 inch thick) slices. These shapes looks like spirals.
8. Arrange them on the cookie sheet and bake at 375 F for 20 to 25 minutes.
9. After 20 minutes keep checking and when the spirals turns into golden color take them out and let then cool and arrange them on the platter.
10. Yum! Yum! Yum! Spicy spirals are ready with no effort at all.

Serving Tips:
1. One can substitute the cranberry chutney with Mint Chutney or Coriander Chutney.
2. If you want to make this more colorful after applying the cranberry chutney apply another layer of coriander chutney. Spirals will be beautiful with Pink and Green colors.
3. When you apply multiple spreads you have to use less quantity so that the spiral won't oozes the filling outside. If the filling comes outside it gets burnt and does look good.

For my vegetarian friends egg wash is optional. or can be substituted with flour wash. Take 1 tsp all purpose flour and mix it water and then brush the sheets with this.
