I am cooking-challenged, but this is so easy, delicious, and beautiful even for me! I feel so proud when I bring this to a function and everyone oohs and ahs at how pretty it is. And then they taste it and can't believe how good it is. The yellow star and the red garland made from bell peppers are just gorgeous on here. I like to stick the rolls in the freezer for a couple of minutes before I open the can and slice them. It helps the rolls stay nice and round when they're being sliced. You can make the rolls into the shape of a big heart for Valentine's Day, and use red veggies like bell pepper & tomatoes, and even add some red food coloring to the cream cheese mixture to make it really Valentines-y. And you can do the shape of a pumpkin for Halloween parties and use carrots and orange bell peppers...

I took this to a Christmas party and everyone LOVED it. I modified the sour cream/cream cheese mixture by adding 1/2 packet of ranch dressing mix to it and leaving out the dill and garlic. It really adds a nice flavor.

Made recipe as listed....and loved it, but... If you love a garlic/onion taste, keep recipe as is. If you want it a little milder, to please a more diverse crowd, I would halve the dill, and ease up on the garlic. Also, I will definately try freezing the dough for a few minutes before, which was suggested in a previous post. The cutting was a little difficult and sloppy for a beginner.. complaints!!

Always a hit! Instead of 2 trees I sometimes make one large one. Bake top half on one cookie sheet and bottom half on another. Also good with herbed cream cheese. I do not use the dill.

I made this beautiful appetizer for our Family Christmas Party. It was a huge success, everyone was wondering about different ways to make it for other holidays. My only tip is to start by adding finely chopped broccoli add other veggies and end with finely chopped cauliflower, it really gives the appearence of snow on a tree.

What a BEAUTIFUL finger food to bring to a party. I got rave reviews from my co-workers! It couldn't be easier and was quite the hit. Many recipe requests for this one! Make it, you won't be disappointed!

This is a very easy recipe and it looks great when presented. I have recieve many compliments. The only change that I make is omitt the dill weed and garlic powder and instead mix a packet of dry ranch dressing with the cream cheese and sour cream
