Thank you I made this desert for a milk meal on the festival of Rosh hashana (the Jewish new year) was a huge success. I used ricotta and something called Toborg which i discovered,which is a bland crumbly white cheese (similar to what is called cna'an in Israel) I put about 1 large tablespoon of filling at the bottom part of strip and after first roll I presed the sides down with my thumb to stick the sides down, then it is easy to roll. Another thing- the filling was enough for exactry double (got 12 rolls) Thank you very much1 delicious

This was wonderful! Definitely worth the effort. It does take a bit of organization before hand. Will be making these for special occasions again and again and again!!! Thanks for the inspiration!
