These are delicious. There is no need to look for special cream cheese I use an 8 oz block of regular cream cheese at room temperature so it will mix well with the pineapple. After you roll up the tortillas refrigerate for an hour or two. This sets up firmer so your pinwheels won't get mushy and are easy to slice.
This was very good but I did make a few changes. I used regular cream cheese and pineapple in heavy syrup not juice. After reading some of the reviews that the juice makes it too thin. I let the pineapple sit in a strainer for about 5 minutes then mixed with the cream cheese. It wasn't even slightly runny. It was perfect! Next time i will maybe try to sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of the ham.
I have to say that I really liked these! I did use regular cream cheese and just put the pineapple on top of it didnt mix it in. I think using pineapple cream cheese would be too much. And make sure you really drain your pineapple. Very yummy!
These were so good! I made sure I drained the pineapple well before mixing it into the cream cheese and being careful not to overstuffand I let them in the refrigerator for several hours rolled in plastic wrap. I didn't set them out until the last minute so the cream cheese wouldn't warm up and only put out half of the recipe at a time because of the warm weather. They were not mushy at all. Using regular cream cheese instead of whipped might help if you are worried about them being too soft.
These pinwheels where a big hit at my party!! Everyone wanted the recipe! I couldn't find the whipped pineapple but they did have just regular pineapple cream cheese that I was a little hesitant to use after reading some of these comments but i dried out my pineapple really good with a lot of paper towels 3 times and they turned out great & were the talk of the party! Not mushy at all!
Yum! I actually found the pineapple cream cheese however I spread that on the tortillas and placed the crushed pineapple on top of that rather than mixing the two in a spread. To combat the fear of soggy tortillas I drained the pineapple in a collander then spread it out on paper towels and gently blotted everything to soak up more juice. To really hold everything together I made them a day ahead and refridgerated overnight. They were still bland though but not bad. Thanks.
I dug these they were different & really tasty. As most of the other reviewers I could not find pineapple cream cheese. I just purchased plain cream cheese & whipped it up with my KitchenAid. I strained my can of crushed pineapple really really well & then actually threw it all in the KitcheAid with the cream cheese & blended it all together. Then I rolled them up tightly in saran wrap and threw them in the fridge & didn't cut them up until right before the party. Very cheap super easy & went over well at the bday party I took them to. Next time I might add in a bit more ham but that is all a personal preferance. Thanks for sharing!:)
excellent - I also just used regular cream cheese and used and hand mixer to get the cc and pineapple to mix well. I didn't have issues with too much juice and didn't spend a whole lot of time draining stuff. Nice departure from the traditional salsa based pinwheels!
