Finnish Pastry Pinwheels

So, after dinner (see previous post!) Raisa bravely decided to make the Finnish pinwheel pastries (first mentioned in this blog by Meg a month ago, on December 21st). Here is the diagram Raisa drew Meg, showing how to make the pastries:

The prunes were prepared:

Raisa and YoonJu place prune mixture in centre of pastry:

We all took turns squishing the ends of the pastry together - the two sharp corners - to make the pinwheel shape:

The baked pinwheels with a little icing sugar sprinkled on top (mm).

The woods behind Raisa's house the following morning. We watched the birds make patterns in the snow.
