From the Gaither Kitchen {Christmas Pinwheels}

Cranberry Pecan Christmas Pinwheels are one of my favorite appetizers to make over the holidays.  They are festive, bite size, and always a crowd pleaser.  

What You Will Need  

2- 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 Cup of coarsely chopped pecans
6 slices of bacon (cooked crisp so it will crumble)
1 Cup of dried cranberries (chopped coarsely)
½ Cup of green onions (thinly sliced)
4 large tortillas (2 sun dried tomato and 2 spinach if you want to “tis the season”)

Combine all ingredients (minus the tortillas) in a large bowl. Lay one tortilla on a flat surface and spread ¼ of the mixture evenly across the tortilla going all the way to the edge. Roll the tortilla up tightly and wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. To serve, unwrap each roll and cut into slices about ¼ inch thick.  To shorten the amount of time on this recipe I suggest a KitchenAid Food Chopper (I live by mine when cooking) and you can also buy microwaveable bacon and cook crisp. 

 Plate, Garnish, Enjoy!
