Pinwheels in a Pinch

Our office Thanksgiving luncheon is today.  Last week I signed up for Potatoes Gratin which I adore making and everyone loves.  Well over the weekend I forgot about today being the day and even if I had remembered… used the potatoes in another recipe for a family dinner last night.  Uggg!  What to do, what to do.  I went to the store trusting that I could figure it out there and come back with a fairly simple solution to my predicament.  Simple enough it was: a package of tortillas, deli ham, and cream cheese - voila.  I know this kind of thing doesn’t ever happen to you, but just in case, keep this little idea tucked away for a rainy day or plan to make them on purpose, they are delicious.


Yield: 160 pieces
1 - 20 count package Flour Tortillas (fajita size)    
1 - 9 ounce package Smoked Deli Ham (thin sliced)
1 – 8 ounce tub Cream Cheese Spread (I used Onions and Chives)
On a tortilla, spread the cream cheese and lay 2-3 slices of ham… overlapping.  Roll up tightly and cut evenly 8 times across to make 8 pinwheels.  Repeat with the remaining tortillas.  Use moistened paper towels underneath, between and over layers as you stack on a plate (to keep from drying out) until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
