    I'mPat's Note:

    This was made by Naomi Crisante on James Reeson's Alive and Cooking. I did a savoury version using a herb and garlic cream cheese. It was also suggested you could do a sweet version using fruit filled cheeses. These creams cheeses come in 200 gram round packs in Australia and for this recipe a South Cape brand of Savoury Cream Cheese was used. Suggested you serve with a tomato salsa.

      Pat, these are simple, and relatively easy to make. I made mine 'sweet', as opposed to 'savory', by using a strawberry cream cheese. I shaped into logs and froze for a bit, to harden the 'logs' up some. I did reduce the recipe, by half, and sprinkled with powdered sugar before serving. They were lovely as a dessert; I could even see them on a pastry tray for breakfast! I will try them with an herb and garlic cream cheese soon! Thanks so much for sharing, Pat!

      These are good! You can make whatever flavor you want depending on the cream cheese you choose. I made some with chive and onion cream cheese. they were crispy on the outside and the cream cheese melted just enough that they were creamy not runny. I sprinkled a little bit (probably 1/2 tsp) poppy seeds on them. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
