Lincoln logs made an appearance on The Sopranos when Carmela made Lincoln log sandwiches out of hot dog rolls, hot dogs and cream cheese. Serve this more elegant version on crostini as an hors d'oeuvre.

Servings: Makes 3 rolls

Ready time: 2 hours, 25 minutes, including chilling


1 250-gram (8-ounce) package firm cream cheese

1/3 cup melted butter

2 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish

1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce

3 green onions, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 teaspoons lemon zest

Salt to taste

6 slices prosciutto


Combine cream cheese, butter, horseradish, hot pepper sauce, green onions, parsley and lemon zest. Add salt to taste. Divide mixture into three portions, and roll in plastic wrap into 5-inch logs. Chill for one hour.

Overlap two prosciutto slices lengthwise on plastic wrap. Place a log on long side. Roll up using plastic wrap as your guide. Cut off any ends. Repeat with remaining prosciutto and logs. Chill again. Cut into slices for serving.
