When I make this I imagine my Grandmother in a Jackie Kennedy dress getting ready for "Bridge Club" with a Bloody Mary in one hand and a knife in the other.

The recipe is super simple with a few tricks.

1 jar of dill pickle spears
1 small container Philly Cream Cheese
1 pack of your favorite lunch meat (I like turkey but ham is good too)

THOUROUGHLY dry the pickles and meat on some paper towels. Spread a little cream cheese on each slice of meats. Roll it all up with a pickle in the middle.



With a good sharp knife cut the rolls into 1/2 slices and stick some funky tooth pics in each.



Now for the tricks.
*Drying is very important. If stuff is too wet you will have soup instead of finger foods.
*Warm up the cream cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds to make it spread better.
*Put the flat end of the pickle at the flat end of the meats. You will have less waste and even ends to display better.
*Make sure you mess up a few times so you can eat broken bits of goodness.

ENJOY!

I've no idea how many times I've made these for the kids to snack on. I add sliced cheese and use sweet pickles instead--they're not really big kosher/dill fans. It's fast, easy and tasty, especially if you put each one on a little cracker (we like Keebler). Chives in the cream cheese make a nice little zesty bite, as well.

That all sounds amazing. I will have to try with other stuffings.

This can also be made with fat free cream cheese and low fat/calorie meat to be a supper healthy snack equaling 0-1 Weight Watcher points. Its been a while scince WW so I don't remember exactly.

I suppose it could even be vegitarian if you wrapped in white bread or sandwich tortilla things.

I do these with tiny sweet pickles (no cutting of pickle needed) or pickled asparagus.

Also, instead of cream cheese, I know that spreadable olive loaf is also good! And I wrap mine in tortilla shells (with the lunch meat, cream cheese & pickle). I ALWAYS use the pickles with the stork on them - they don't get mushy like the other ones..... Grin
