Strawberry & Cream Pinwheels

This recipe shows how versatile the flour tortilla is!
When I first saw this recipe, I thought it not only looked adorable, it made my mouth water!
Strawberries, cream cheese, powdered sugar ... I'm licking my lips in anticipation!

I'm here to say, it did not disappoint. 
And if you want something that looks interesting & impressive but is an absolute cinch to pull together,
it's Strawberry & Cream Pinwheels for the WIN!

Here's what you do:
Blend together cream cheese & chopped fresh strawberries.
(Either by hand, with a mixer, or a food processor.)
You can throw in a pinch of cinnamon on this step if you'd like.

Spread the cream cheese mixture onto flour tortillas, as thick or as thin as you prefer.
I ended up making 10 pinwheels altogether.

Roll them up & place into a ziploc bag.
(I placed them back into the tortilla bag.)
You can even pile them on a plate & cover with plastic wrap.
This step helps the tortilla to soften & to stick together, making a tight pinwheel.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before slicing (can be made up to a day ahead of time).

Slice into pieces about 1 inch in size & arrange on a pretty plate/platter.
Place some whole strawberries here & there to look pretty & sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar.
Completely over-the-top adorable, right!

Be prepared to eat a half dozen or so!

These are great for Valentine's Day, date night, or brunch ...
And they also make a great addition to a bridal or baby shower!
Or how about just a late night snack if you get the hankering, right?!

  1. This sounds really tasty! I'm picturing some variations, too. I think I've seen honey wheat tortillas in the store, so something with honey and maybe walnuts.....MmMmMmMmMm
