Turkey Cranberry Pinwheels

These pinwheels are great for lunch.  They also make a good appetizer.  These are the basic ingredients we used.  You can use anything you like in a sandwich.

Flavored tortilla wraps

Softened cream cheese

Cranberry Sauce

Turkey slices

Lettuce or sprouts

DSC01753Spread cream cheese over the entire surface of the tortilla.

DSC01754Spread cranberry sauce on the bottom half of the tortilla.
