Cranberry Feta Pinwheels

Happy Throwback Thursday! Today I am throwing it back to a few weeks ago when I was fortunate enough to do a live food demonstration on one of the local TV stations here in Springfield, MO. One of the components of my dietetic internship at Missouri State University is to complete media interviews…check that off the list! It was my first time on live TV and it wasn’t nearly as nerve wrecking as I thought it would be. It didn’t hurt that the anchor and other crew members loved the recipe! Check out the link here:

Cranberry Feta Pinwheels

  • 1-oz carton whipped cream cheese
  • 1 cup (8 oz) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 6 oz dried cranberries
  • 4 – 10 in whole wheat flour tortillas (burrito size)

Wash the green onions and dice into 1/8 inch slices. In a large bowl, combine the feta cheese, whipped cream cheese, green onions, and cranberries. Mix together. Spread the mixture onto a plate and divide into 4 even sections (this way each pinwheel will have the same amount of filling). Spread 1/4 of the mixture on the tortilla and roll the tortilla up tightly. Repeat with the remaining cheese mixture and tortillas. Wrap each tortilla in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight. When ready to serve, slice off the ends (about 1 in on each side), and cut each roll into about 10 slices. Be sure not to cut them too thin or they will fall apart!

Cranberry Feta Pinwheels: Tara Tested, Tara, KY3, and roommates approved! These super simple pinwheels are so tasty and a breeze to make. Perfect for luncheons or parties that you don’t have much time to prepare for. You can also customize the ingredients to your liking and experiment with different flavors – I’m thinking of trying a dessert pinwheel next!
