I make these often for birthday parties. I can't always find dill so use chives instead and always add grated lemon rind to give them an extra kick.

These are fabulous! I used half plain cream cheese and half garlic/herb cream cheese which was delicious. Do leave them in the fridge before you serve them to firm them up and for ease of cutting.

Really good. I did some with cream cheese and roasted vegetables and just left out the dill....very nice! Leave as long as poss to chill in the fridge!

I had these yesterday at a new years party and it tastes amazing. It was that good that I had to look up the recipe myself. It also seems so easy to make.

I was worried about the slicing up at the end here ie whether to use a serrated knife (which I guess is best for cutting smoked salmon), or an unserrated one (which I imagine would be best for cutting tortilla)? So there was a little sawing/switching of knives (on my part) and tearing (on the part of the food) and sometimes the tortillas unravelled a bit. A tip for anybody yet to make this - if you cut off a slice and it looks less than perfect, turn it over - the other side may look better - this happened to me with a few slices :-). I couldn't comment on the taste as I am a vegetarian and I got no comments on it from my guests.

We loved these. Made for sister's 60th party and my six-year-old nephew kept returning when I was cutting off the end-bits to make a straight edge and helpfully eating all the "spare ends.!"

Made these for a party and they disappeared in no time - varied the recipe for the vegetarians by substituting hummus, and used less cream cheese to make them less moist and roll properly. Great to make ahead then just unwrap and slice immediately before serving - more time spent with my guests.

the OH loved these! I didnt like the dill so I would try it with chives next time. But they looked great!

Fabulous recipe! Impressive looking but so easy
I used garlic-cream cheese and leek (4 cm.) instead of dill, made it for our villages's annual "New Year nibble contest" and won first prize!!

Fantastic - and so easy. I made this for Xmas and it was a huge hit! Even my mother-in-law liked it.

If you used red peppers (from a jar) or thinly-sliced cucumber this would make a vegetarian alternative

Fantastic appetiser. So simple but very, very effective! I used garlic cream cheese to give it a bit of an extra twist.
