Turkey, Avocado, & Havarti Pinwheels from Williams-Sonoma® and American Girl


These playful pinwheel-shaped sandwich bites can be made using any type of flour tortilla, but for a fun and colorful presentation, triple the recipe and use three different-colored tortillas.


Makes about 16 pinwheels.


  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 2 (8-inch) spinach, tomato, or whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 2 ounces sliced havarti cheese
  • 3 to 4 ounces sliced smoked or roasted turkey
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
    If the avocado half contains the pit, use a spoon to scoop out the pit and discard. Carefully peel off the skin, put the flesh in a small bowl, and roughly mash.
  2. Place the tortillas in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
    Place the cheese on the tortillas, dividing it evenly and tearing it into smaller pieces so it covers the tortilla evenly. Bake until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Transfer the tortillas to a cutting board. Carefully arrange the turkey slices over the cheese, leaving about 1 inch uncovered on one side. Spread the mashed avocado on top of the turkey. Starting on the turkey-covered side opposite the uncovered side, tightly roll up each tortilla into a cylinder (the exposed melted cheese will act as a glue to hold the cylinder together).
  4. Trim off the ends of each cylinder. Discard (or eat!) the ends, and then slice each cylinder crosswise into 8 pinwheels. Serve right away.
