Olive oil

8 oz goat cheese

Spicy Garlic Dill and Prosciutto Puff Pastry Rollups

These tasty little rollups were the star of the day, created by Vanessa. Super easy to make, festive looking, and delicious!

1 package puff pastry, thawed

1 package cream cheese, softened

2 Tbsp Halladay’s Spicy Garlic Dill Dip & Seasoning Blend

6 thin slices of prosciutto or thinly sliced ham


Preheat oven to 375°F.  Mix the cream cheese with the Spicy Garlic Dill Dip and Seasoning Blend. Unfold one sheet of the puff pastry, cut in half lengthwise. Smear each half of the dough with the cream cheese mixture; then lay 3 pieces of prosciutto or ham on each piece. Roll the dough into a log and trim the ends. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.


Remove the logs and cut into slices. Place on a lined baking sheet, spiral side up. Bake at 375°F for about 18 minutes, or until golden brown. If you need to make them ahead, they can be frozen after they cool for up to one month. Just pop them in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes when ready to enjoy them!

We hope you try some of these recipes this holiday season! If you do, be sure to share them to Instagram or Facebook and tag us at @halladaysharvestbarn and use the hashtag #halladaysathome so we can see them!
