Cranberry Turkey Pinwheels




Are you the person that eats cranberry sauce with their turkey on Thanksgiving? Well then do I have a treat for you!  To me there is nothing better than after dinner sandwiches on Thanksgiving. Mine will usually consist of turkey, cranberry sauce, mayo, salt, and pepper, on a pumpernickel rye.  But since that is pretty much only a once a year thing I give you these. I promise after you give these a try you will want them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  





So why should you have to wait for Thanksgiving to eat this amazing flavor combination?There is something about fruit and cream cheese that goes so very well together. 
Mixing sweet and tart cranberries with creamy, tangy cream cheese and a tad bit of mayo makes the most flavorful spread to bring out the turkey flavor. Double or triple this recipe for an amazing party platter that your guests are sure to love.


...................................................................................................................................................................
Ingredients
8 oz. whipped cream cheese

2 tablespoons mayonaise

1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce from 10 oz. can

8 (10-inch) flour tortillas

1/2 head red or green leaf lettuce, torn into 4-inch pieces

16 slices deli turkey

16 slices muenster cheese


Directions
In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and mayo with cranberry sauce until wellcombined.

Lay out one tortilla and spread a thick layer of cream cheese mixture all the way to the edges. In the middle of the tortilla, layer 3 lettuce leaves down the middle of the tortilla.

Next, layer two slices of turkey and 4 pieces of muenster cheese on top of the lettuce. 

Starting at one end of the tortilla, roll tightly towards the filling. Continue rolling until the filling is tightly wrapped and the cream cheese holds the pinwheel together.

Continue with the remaining tortillas until all have been assembled. Wrap each tortilla pinwheel tightly in plastic wrap taking care to seal the edges.

Chill the wrapped pinwheels in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving. To serve, slice each tortilla into 5 pieces and play on a platter or tray.

    1. Plastic wrap is great. I also like press and seal by Glad. Just be sure to cover the ends!
