Thaw one roll of fillo, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, bacon, cheese and ranch dressing. Mix thoroughly.
Open the fillo and cover the sheets with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of fillo on cutting surface and lightly coat with cooking spray. Repeat with nine more sheets of fillo, but do not spray the top layer of fillo.
Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the layered fillo. Starting with the long side of the fillo, begin rolling the pinwheel tightly. Spray the last quarter inch border of fillo to seal the seam. Cut the pinwheels into ¼ – ½ inch segments and arrange on a baking tray. Coat the outside of the pinwheels with cooking spray. Reroll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Pinwheel rolls can be wrapped in plastic and frozen prior to baking. To serve, unwrap, cut and bake following baking instructions.
Brush outside of the pinwheels with egg wash to improve browning.
