These roll-ups are simply divine. A friend shared the recipe after serving them at a church brunch, where they disappeared fast. They make a unique finger food, a side dish at supper or a lovely lunch served with soup.

"This is one of my favorite fingerfood appetizers to bring to a party. They always go quickly. When I make extra batches at home, I find I enjoy them just as much when cold from the fridge as when fresh out of the oven. Love them! It's also a great recipe that kids can easily help with."

"Wonderful! I did substitute 'chive and onion' cream cheese for the regular cream cheese. Again, wonderful."
