Pistachio Cheese Rolls

This is a great little bite to enjoy with a glass of wine when you have guests over. The recipe makes about 20 pieces, so you can adjust for the number of people there will be.  The usual numbers are 5 pieces per person, if only one item being offered, or 3 pieces if there are two or more. Just sayin!  (no error here).

 

  • 1/2 cup red seedless grapes
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1/2 cup soft cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup soft chevre cheese (goat cheese)
  • 2 large tortillas
  • Lettuce leaves

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Roast pistachios on a cookie sheet for about 3 minutes.  When thoroughly cool, chop fine.

Finely chop the grapes and place in a bowl with the pistachios and both cheeses.  Mix until well blended and the cheese is smooth.

Lay a tortilla flat on surface and spread one half of the mixture on top.  Place a crisp, cleaned lettuce leaf on top and roll up.  Wrap in plastic wrap.  Repeat for the second tortilla and place both in the refrigerator for at least one hour.  When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and with a very sharp knife cut into 1/2 inch pieces and serve with your favourite glass of grape. (wine!)

 

Note:  If you sample even one piece of this, you will be making another recipe.  One of the best that can and should be doubled. Honest….
