Christmas Tree Roll-Ups

We never have a holiday party because I'm never organized enough to have my house presentable and party supplies bought AND all the gifts bought and wrapped. Something has to give! But we do get invited to a few parties and I hate to show up empty-handed. How cute are these easy little appetizers from Life Made Delicious? I can whip these little bites up in no time and still have time to put on something sparkly!

Christmas Tree Roll-Ups
makes 64

1 pkg (250 g) cream cheese, softened 
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from 7.25-oz jar)
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped ripe olives 
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh basil leaves  
1/4 cup (50 mL) shredded Parmesan cheese
4 spinach-flavour flour tortillas (8 to 10 inches in diameter) 
Ripe olive pieces 

  1. In medium bowl, mix all ingredients except tortillas and olive pieces. Divide mixture among tortillas, spreading to edges of tortillas. Roll up tightly. Press each tortilla roll into triangle shape, using fingers. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  2. To serve, cut rolls into 1/2-inch slices. Place olive piece at bottom of each triangle to look like tree trunk; secure with toothpick.
Tip: If you don't have time to press this appetizer into the shape of Christmas trees, just prepare the filling as directed, spread on tortillas and roll up. Refrigerate 2 hours, and cut into slices.

Tip: This recipe is easy to cut in half for a smaller group.
