CRANBERRY FETA PINWHEELS

During the busy holiday season, easy appetizers that can be made ahead of time are game changers. There’s nothing like knowing you have a full fridge of snacks and side dishes ready to go a day before guests start arriving.

Whether you are having a small get together or a large holiday party, these Cranberry Feta Pinwheels are perfect appetizers to prep ahead and store for up to a week. For best results, store in the refrigerator uncut and wrapped tightly in plastic. The day of your party all you’ll need to do is slice them and place them on a platter.

If you are worried about your tortillas getting soggy, you can also just prep the Cranberry Feta Cream Cheese Spread. It only takes minutes to roll up the wraps so the day of your party just spread the filling, roll and refrigerate for a couple hours.

Cranberry Feta Pinwheels are some of the best tortilla roll ups ever. The slightly sweet cranberries mixed with the savory feta cheese crumbles and bits of green onions is a tasty flavor combination. You can use different tortillas to add even more flavors.

Try using spinach tortillas for these Cranberry Feta Pinwheels for a festive looking wrap. If you want to go full holiday theme, arrange the pinwheels on a large platter in the shape of a Christmas Tree and serve with a side of Cranberry Sauce for dipping.

Make extra Cranberry Feta filling to use as a bagel spread on Christmas morning. The filling will last for about a week stored in the refrigerator and sealed tightly. Or double the recipe and make a Cranberry Feta Cheese Ball that you can store for up to a month!

This is a great recipe to use up Thanksgiving or Christmas leftovers. Add leftover Roasted Turkey or Baked Ham to your Cranberry Feta Pinwheels for an easy, filling lunch tortilla roll up. If you made Cranberry Relish, use that instead of dried cranberries, spreading over the cream cheese instead of mixing in.

Can I bake Cranberry Feta Pinwheels?

Yes! There are two ways to bake this recipe:
1. Place cut Cranberry Pinwheels into the cups of a muffin tin sprayed with canola oil. The muffin tin keeps the cream cheese from spreading everywhere. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, until melty.
2. Use puff pastry sheets instead of tortillas. Spread filling on puff pastry and roll up. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
