New Year's Eve in the Barbie Nation

Everyone in the Barbie Nation loves ham rolls.  We've been serving them at parties for as long as I can remember.  It is also a great use for some of that leftover holiday ham.
A top five party food!

6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 sticks butter

Cream together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Stir in flour until thoroughly mixed.

2 cups flour

Store in refrigerator an hour or so before rolling out. Roll about 1/2-inch thick and cut out in a rectangle.

2 cups baked ham, ground
brown sugar
1 cup grated cheese, optional

I grind my ham by cutting it in chunks and then giving it a whirl in the food processor with the sharp blade.  You can also use a meat grinding attachment on the Kitchen-Aid.  Dust the dough lightly with brown sugar. Sprinkle with ground baked ham. If you want cheese, add it now. Roll jelly roll fashion and cut into 3/8 inch slices. Bake 20 minutes at 400˚ on cookie sheet. Serve hot with mustard or just plain.
**If you make them bite-size, cook 13 minutes.**  Divide the dough in half and make two jelly rolls. This makes 60 one-inch rolls that are perfect for an appetizer tray.

Annette lucked out, as usual. She managed to snag this silvery dream of an evening dress AND a spot as a duchess at the Shimmer Ball when one of the participants backed out at the last minute.  She will be among the high-rollers at this event.  She'll probably come home in a Rolls Royce.  It makes playing dumb seem like a smart move.  Unfortunately for Annette, she really is missing some gray matter.
