Cranberry Cream Cheese Pinwheels

From guest contributor Paula...

When entertaining, try this simple and delicious snack. It's so easy, but your guests will think you spent hours working on it. They're great for an appetizer or just a snack. At Christmas, you can use spinach tortillas to make them look more festive.

You'll need:
  • 4 soft flour tortillas
  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Craisins
  • 2 bunches diced green onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

  1. Mix cream cheese and garlic salt together until well blended. Spread evenly on tops of tortillas.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together cranberries and onions. Sprinkle evenly over cream cheese spread. Lightly press cranberry/onion mix into cream cheese.
  3. Roll up tortilla. Trim off ends. Cut each tortilla into 10 even pieces using a serrated knife, like you would slice bread. HINT: I chilled my rolled up tortillas before slicing. It made them easier to cut without crushing.
It takes about 15 minutes to make (minus the chilling time). Enjoy!
