I have been making these cream cheese pinwheels for years. These appetizers are always a big hit at parties and gatherings. My 2-year old happens to be a huge fan of them as well! They are simple to put together and of course, tasty to eat.


16 ounces cream cheese {softened}

1 packet of dry ranch salad dressing

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup chopped black olives

2 tablespoons chopped pimentos

3 scallions/green onions, chopped

Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla tightly and wrap in plastic wrap. Let them chill for several hours or overnight. Then cut them into pinwheels.
