Pinwheels

We love to make pinwheels here at home. Instead of high calorie bread, we use low fat, low calorie tortillas, roll them up and then cut into bite sized pieces.

You can put turkey and cheese in them, tuna in them and we love cream cheese and salmon in them.

If you're having guests over, pinwheels look wonderful on trays for serving.

Try this chocolate-peanut butter dessert pinwheel:

Filling:
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 1/4 teaspoons confectioners sugar
3/4 teaspoon butter
2 tortillas

Glaze:
1 tablespoon chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon hot water

For the filling; melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave. Cool just slightly. Stir in the cream cheese, peanut butter and confectioners sugar until blended. Spread on tortillas. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate.

For the glaze, melt the chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter in microwave. Stir in hot water until smooth. Drizzle over the cold wraps and serve.
