    twissis's Note:

    Memorial Day is almost here & soon after July 4th. It’s time to share dessert options inspired by the red, white & blue of “Old Glory”. I love using tortillas creatively & am posting 2 related ideas today. I was very detailed w/the prep instructions, but this is truly much easier to do than it may appear. Even if hard to do, it would be worth the time & care taken to make “Old Glory #1” the patriotic star attraction of your holiday get-together for family or friends! (Time does not include refrigeration time)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 9

    Yield:

    2-in Se ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 9 (8 inch) flour tortillas
    • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (softened & divided per step #2 prep)
    • 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
    • 3 tablespoons strawberry preserves (dark & thick as possible)
    • 3 tablespoons blueberry preserves (dark & thick as possible)
    • 1/3 banana

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Use a sharp knife to trim the curved edges of 2 opposite sides of the flour tortillas to a 6-in width (Easy to do 3 at a time, makes spreading the ingredients a uniform process & makes slicing easy in equal segments). Set prepared tortillas aside & cover w/a slightly moistened kitchen towel or washcloth.
    2. 2
      Mix cream cheese w/powdered sugar till well-combined & smooth. Divide mixture into 3 equal portions in separate bowls.
    3. 3
      Add 3 tbsp strawberry preserves to the 1st bowl & mix well. Add 3 tbsp blueberry preserves to the 2nd bowl & mix well. Cut banana in sml pieces, add to the 3rd bowl & mash into cream cheese mixture till fully incorporated & smooth.
    4. 4
      “Eyeball” the strawberry & blueberry mixtures for desired color. If a darker color is desired, add food coloring 1 drop at a time till you’re happy w/the color.
    5. 5
      Assembly: Put 1 pre-cut tortilla on your work surface & spread 1/3 of the strawberry mixture over the tortilla surface. Place a 2nd tortilla 1-in to the right (keeping the end cuts lined up) & spread 1/3 of the banana mixture over the tortilla surface. Place a 3rd tortilla 1-in further to the right (lined up again) & spread 1/3 of the blueberry mixture over the tortilla surface.
    6. 6
      Begin w/the tortilla flat on the work surface & roll them together into a circular log. The log will be fairly substantial in size & should be compact, but not so tight that your filling wants to “escape”. Wrap ea log snugly in foil or plastic wrap, so they do not come apart & their shape is retained. Repeat assembly steps w/rest of tortillas & ingredients. Refrigerate tortilla logs at least 2 hrs or put in your freezer for at least 1 hours.
    7. 7
      Remove from refrigerator or freezer & cut logs immediately w/a very sharp knife into 3-in servings (6), 2-in servings (9) or 1-in pieces (18). Serve immediately or refrigerate covered in plastic wrap till ready to serve.
    8. 8
      Serving Suggestion: Put on serving platter w/dish of cool whip & garnish w/banana slices + halved fresh strawberries & fresh blueberries. I bet kids would like a dish of red & blue M&M’s on the side too!

      Really ripe strawberries are key for topping these. The flavors are all great together. I skipped the powdered sugar and didn't miss it, since the strawberries were naturally so sweet.

      Delicious! I had some (whole wheat) tortillas leftover from another recipe so could only make one roll. I used Neufchatel cheese with some nice blueberry preserves and homemade strawberry jam from the farmer's market. From the photos, you can see that I spread the filling on the tortillas before I layered them, just because it seemed like it would be less messy that way. I had a slight issue with the rolling step (wasn't sure which way to go and then thought I'd done it wrong but then realized it was correct, I just made a bit of a mess of it...) but otherwise thought this was a delightful dessert! Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef]

      My intention was to make this with both oreserves, but after starting this I realized I just had strawberry preserves, so that is what I did, but I doubled the amount to make up for the blueberry preserves. Ending result was a very nice dessert for us. One of the easiest recipes to prepare for, not including the tortilla strips, but that was pretty easy too. I did make wraps out of these. The preserve cream cheese mixture was a nice combination, and was enjoyed tonight during the game. Made for New Zaar Tag.
