Here's a fun twist on a favorite standby—a cream cheese and jelly sandwich. In this version, we spread reduced-fat cream cheese on a whole-wheat tortilla or wrap, layer on some spreadable or sliced fruits and wrap it all up in a neat and fun-to-eat package.

  • Total Time : 5 minutes
  • Prep Time : 5 minutes
  • Servings : 1

Ingredients

  • One 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla or wrap
  • 2 Tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1 Tablespoon spreadable all-fruit preserves

variations

  • Instead of cream cheese, try 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter.
  • Instead of preserves, try 2 Tablespoons of thinly sliced strawberries, peaches or apples.
 

Directions

step 1Spread the cream cheese evenly onto the whole-wheat tortilla or wrap, working from the center outward and leaving a 1-inch border around the edge without cheese.
step 2Spread all-fruit preserves (or place thinly sliced fruit) on top of the cream cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border of plain cream cheese.
step 3Roll up the wraps tightly, being careful not to push the filling out of the sides. Slice in half and serve. If you’re making them for a meal later in the day, wrap in Saran™ Premium Wrap and place in a Ziploc® Brand Container with the Smart Snap® Seal in the fridge. Squiggly Wiggly wraps will keep overnight in your fridge.

chef's notes

Check the list of ingredients on the whole-wheat tortilla labels and choose brands with lower levels of sodium and sweeteners per serving.

For a birthday party or gathering at home, slice wraps into 1-inch-thick rounds and serve on a platter garnished with grapes or apple slices.

To give your rounds a more consistent pinwheel effect, slice the rounded edges from your tortilla or wrap to create a rectangle. Then spread with cream cheese and fruit preserves and roll.

A serrated bread knife makes cutting the wraps easier.

Cream cheese & Jelly? Brilliant! My 7 year old is allergic to peanuts and this is a great alternative to a PB&J. Thanks!

Jenn, I bet the squashed bananas with the peanut butter on the wrap would be yummy too.

jelly and cream cheese sandwiches are one of my son's favorite lunches (he's 2). I can't wait to try this with him. The other thing he loves is squished up bananas instead of jelly ... tastes a litte like banana bread w/ cream cheese frosting.
