  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

For the pinwheel sandwiches


To make the Ranch Cream Cheese

  • Place the cream cheese, buttermilk and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients for the cream cheese spread and pulse until combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ranch cream cheese, shredded cheese and chives. Spread 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture into even layers on each tortilla.
  • Sprinkle each tortilla with ham and diced pickle. Roll each tortilla tight to make sure the cream cheese binds the tortillas together.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours until fully chilled. Cut into 1/2-inch wheels and serve.


  • Store these sandwiches in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
