The taste of these pinwheels is not only addicting, but they are sooooo easy to prepare and serve. I like cold appetizers because my oven and stove are usually stuffed to capacity at party time. Warning: Make lots - they go fast! Thanks, Miss Annie, for a great dish.

Very easy, tasty & quick - just what I was looking for in a recipe for a work potluck. I used spinach tortillas, low-fat cream cheese, and added about a half-cup of shredded cheddar cheese. I took home an empty platter, both DH & I enjoyed the "ends" as a snack, lol. :)
