  1. Chop the capers and the chives, then zest the lemon. Combine the cream cheese and horseradish in a bowl and add the capers, half of the chives and half of the lemon zest along with a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Combine everything well.
  2. Cut the biscuits into bite-sized pieces. Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a piping bag and squeeze a little on to one end of each cheese biscuit. Roll small slices of smoked salmon into roses and arrange next to the cream cheese on each biscuit.
  3. Sprinkle the canapés with the leftover chopped chive and lemon zest, then serve up and offer to your guests!
