  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 4 tbsp jam I used cherry but you can use any berry preserve
  • 9 slices deli smoked ham
  • 9 slices Swiss cheese plus 1 cup shredded
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk


  • Preheat oven to 375º F. 
  • Place a sheet of thawed puffy pastry dough on a floured surface. Spread on an even layer of jam, leaving an inch of room around the sides
  • Layer ham on top, and then cheese. Sprinkle half of the chopped rosemary if desired.  Roll up tightly, tucking the dough onto itself.
  • Cut into slices about 1-inch thick and lay the rolls on a large cast-iron or small baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Make sure to leave a small distance between them to let rise in the oven.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. In a small saucepan over medium heat,  combine 1 cup shredded cheese with milk, mixing just until cheese melts. Pour over rolls, sprinkle remaining rosemary,  and serve while hot. Enjoy!
  • Note: If desired, mix additional 1-2 tbsp jam with a few drops of water and heat in the microwave for 25-30 seconds and drizzle over baked rolls and cheese sauce.
