 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      8 oz pkgs     cream cheese -- softened
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced
    1      teaspoon      ground ginger
    6      slices        roast beef -- cut 1/4 inch thick
    9      quartered     canned spiced crab apples -- well drained
                         cellophane-tipped toothpicks
 
 Prepare the filling by combining the cream cheese, garlic and ginger.  Whip
 in a blender.
 
 Spread the filling generously and evenly on the roast beef slices and roll
 them up lengthwise.  Wrap the rolls in foil and freeze them for half an
 hour.
 
 Remove rolls from the freezer and cut into 1-inch-wide slices, which will
 have a lovely spiral design.  Garnish each slice with a quartered crab apple
 attached with a cellophane-tipped toothpick and serve.  Makes about 36.
 
 Do-Ahead Note:  Prepare the rolls the day before and freeze.  Two hours
 before serving, remove from the freezer.  Cut, garnish and allow to stand at
 room temperature until serving time.
