How to make Dill Pickle Pinwheels

First assemble the following ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese – cream cheese is what keeps these pinwheels together and gives them a creamy texture.
  • Deli Ham – you can use any deli ham you want or even turkey for these pinwheels. You want to get the meat thinly sliced so it is easy to roll and keep the pinwheels bitesize.
  • Dill Pickles – use pickle spears for a nice roll that keep the pickle in the center.
  • Tortillas – I always use flour tortillas for these pinwheels since I feel like they roll up well and hold together.

Once you have assembled the ingredients, use the following method:

  • Prep. Beat your cream cheese until smooth. Fold the diced ham and pickles into the cream cheese.
  • Spread and assemble. Spread the mixture among the tortillas leaving a gap around the sides. Roll up tightly.
  • Serve. Place on a plate and refrigerate for one hour. Remove from the fridge when ready to serve and slice into one-inch rounds. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Dill Pickle Pinwheels

Roll tight. It is really important to roll the pinwheels really tight so that the filling doesn’t spill out.

Mix it up. Feel free to add some spices to the cream cheese if you prefer such as onion powder, garlic powder, or red pepper to spice things up.


How do you keep leftovers?

These pinwheels can be rolled and wrapped in plastic wrap then placed in the fridge. Cut them when you are ready to eat them.

How long will these keep?

These pinwheels will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Can I make these gluten free?
