Shan's Ham and Cream Cheese Pastry Rolls

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef Shantal

This is a simple appetizer recipe. I got this recipe from my mom in law, I changed it a bit and it keeps changing over the years. Serve them hot, and maybe double the recipe they sure go fast.

I made these for my wife and her friends the other night. I wasn't sure how they'd taste, but they were great! I had to save a few for myself, and good thing they were gone in minutes. All the ladies LOVED them! They were all begging me for the recipe. This is a keeper, its going in dad secret recipe box...shhh! Thanks!
