  2. Starting from side with toppings, roll up very tightly. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 3 hours.

Expert Tips

  • One 8-oz package of cream cheese can be used instead of cream cheese spread for these strawberry pinwheels. Soften cream cheese as directed on package.
  • Rolling tightly is the key to great-looking, easy-to-slice strawberry-cream cheese bites.
