    ChefDLH's Note:

    This appetizer recipe is a cute one on a buffet and is a good filler. It is easy to make and requires no cooking so it frees up time and space. Serve it with other things in case your guests do not care for pickles. If they do like pickles they will gobble them up. Enjoy! ChefDLH

      Have been making these for years, very tasty! I use a kosher dill spear and cut a bit of the seeded part off before rolling. (not so much juice that way.) We also use slices of pastrami and roast beef as well as the ham. Great simple appy. Everybody scarfs these down! Thanks for posting, ChefDLH.

      I served these at a company pot luck and they were a HUGE hit. They are the perfect blend of the crunchy, tangy pickles, and the smooth cream cheese. I will be making these again!!

      Wonderful! I have been making these for a long time. I got the recipe from my father-in-law and it is always a hit at family parties. Just to let others know, feel free to try different types of cream cheese. I prefer low fat myself. Enjoy, these are delicious.
