Make quick and easy appetizer pinwheels with sandwich bread, cream cheese and prepared pesto. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Roll each slice of bread to 1/4-inch thickness with a rolling pin. Using a whisk, beat cream cheese with butter until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Spread about 1/2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture evenly over each slice of bread. Top with 1 Tbsp. pesto and spread thinly. Carefully roll into a tight cylinder.

Step 3

Wrap each cylinder in plastic and twist ends like a candy wrapper to completely seal. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 4

Unwrap cylinders. Using a sharp knife dipped in hot water and wiped dry, cut each cylinder into 6 pieces. Arrange cut side up on a platter and serve at room temperature.

Step 5

I made these with tortillas instead of bread and my own pesto. They were a hit at my happy hour party and my 8yr old loves them!
