    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.

I am a busy mom both with stuff at home and my work. My kids and husband love to try new creations so they are right at home with my love of recipes. It is fun to make something and try several different ways at it. I love to try different enchilada recipes, recipes for various ice teas, and anything that gets food on the table on the weeknights. Restaurant recipes for the weekends are another favorite.
