Spiral Sandwiches Recipe

Spiral Sandwiches

Kids are so proud of these elegant roll-ups that show off a food design inside. Give the young chefs lots of elbow room and tell them to take their time with this.


  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 chives, 1 sprig of dill, and/or 3 basil leaves (optional)
  • 2 eight- to ten-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 tomato, seeded and sliced into thin rounds
  • 6 spinach leaves


Place the cream cheese in a small bowl. For herb cream cheese, use scissors to snip the herbs into tiny pieces, then mash them into the cream cheese with the back of a spoon.

Spread a little cream cheese on each of the spinach leaves, then spread the remainder in a thin layer onto the tortillas. Place three tomato slices in a row down the middle. Top with the spinach leaves, cream cheese facing up.

Roll up each tortilla tightly into a log. Pinch the seams shut. Use a serrated knife to slowly slice each log crosswise into 5 or 6 pinwheel sandwiches. Serves 2 to 4.
