Fruit Cheese Roll

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JustJanS

This is posted for a request. It's from a cookbook I use often-The Aust. Women's Weekly Barbecue Book-though i've never made this cheese roll. I'm only guessing at prep time, and in the blurb, it says it can actually be made up to 4 days ahead to allow the flavours to really develop.

This is very easy to make and always seems to be so popular that people want to know what is in it.
