This received excellent reviews.

TORTILLA - BASIL PINWHEELS

Source of Recipe: Better Homes and Gardens

INGREDIENTS:
3 7-or 8-inch tortillas
1 5.2-ounce carton Boursin cheese OR semisoft cheese with garlic and herbs
12 large fresh basil leaves
1/2 of a 7-ounce jar roasted sweet red peppers, cut into 1/4-inch wide strips
4 ounces thinly sliced cooked roast beef, ham, or turkey
1 tablespoon mayonnaise or salad dressing

Fresh basil leaves to garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Spread each tortilla with one-third of the cheese. Cover cheese with a layer of the large fresh basil leaves. Divide roasted red sweet pepper strips among the tortillas and place them over the basil leaves 1 to 2 inches apart. Top with sliced meat. Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise or salad dressing over the meat on each tortilla.
2. Roll the tortillas up tightly, jelly-roll style. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap. Chill 2 to 4 hours to blend flavors.
3. To serve, remove the plastic wrap and cut each of the rolls into 1-inch slices (make diagonal slices, if desired). Garnish with additional fresh basil leaves, (optional). Skewer each of the cut rolls on frilly picks or short decorative skewers, if desired.

Makes about 24 pinwheels.
