How long can tortilla pinwheels last in the refrigerator?

  • Pinwheels can last up to 3 days in the refrigerator, although they are best eaten within one day of making.

How do you keep pinwheels from getting soggy?

  • Wrap rolled-up pinwheels before slicing – tightly with clear wrap. Store them in the refrigerator for up to one day. Slice pinwheels near party time and serve at room temperature.

Can you freeze pinwheels?

  • To freeze pinwheels, separate them on a baking sheet for up to 2 hours so they are frozen on the outside. Transfer them to a freezer storage bag and freeze for up to 2 months. You can thaw them by spreading them out again on a baking sheet and covering them with clear wrap – overnight in the refrigerator.

Nutrition facts are only an estimate 
Before you spread the filling onto your tortilla shells is a great time to taste test it.  If you think it is too salty, add more cream cheese. If you think it is too thick then you can also add 1-2 Tbsp. of sour cream to thin it out. Adjust it to your preference and taste.
