Cranberry Pinwheels

Earlier this month, some talented friends and I got together and hosted our own little craft show.  We called it a Sip & Shop and invited our friends and family to come out and do a little Christmas shopping.  We held it at the international pantry, which is my favorite store on the planet because I love to cook.  I had my handmade t-shirt scarves there from my own little Scarf Factory.  My childhood friend Ginger makes the most gorgeous, unique jewelry in her own little workshop called the Found Object Studio.   Our friend Courtney, who is a Make-Up Artist joined us and did touch ups and makeovers.  Since this is the same location that Mr. Devilish Dish teaches his cooking classes, it seemed only natural to stick him in the kitchen to demonstrate some appetizers and pour the wine.  He did a demonstration and tasting on Easy & Elegant Holiday Appetizers and they were a huge hit!  These pinwheels were over the top with flavor and the colors scream Christmas.  It's a simple twist on the usual pinwheels that contain cream cheese and Mexican flavors.  This time they're brought to a new level with cranberries, feta cheese and spinach tortillas.  These will make a great addition to your holiday appetizers this year and they are so simple to make ahead.  Roll them up the day before and simply slice before serving.  What could be easier than that? 
Easy and Elegant!
The perfect holiday appetizer.

Cranberry Pinwheels
1 (6 ounce) package dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 (4 ounce) containers feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 package (burrito-sized) spinach tortillas

In a bowl, combine the cranberries, cream cheese, feta cheese and green onions.  Divide and spread mixture evenly among tortillas.  Roll each tortilla up (jelly-roll style) tightly, and wrap in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate at least one hour before slicing.  To serve, cut each roll into 12 slices.
