Asparagus Beef Roll-Ups

In Plano, Texas, Kris Krueger creates these easy and elegant appetizers with asparagus spears, roast beef slices and a cream cheese-horseradish spread. "I make them for all of my parties and have received many recipe requests," she says. "They're a snap to assemble."

    Use 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice mixed with 8 ounces of plain cream cheese and horseradish as an alternative to chive and onion cream cheese. Yummo ;-)
