Great appy! I used pecan chips since that is what I had but otherwise followed the recipe. Was very good and will be made again! Anything with gorgonzola and I am in heaven and shockingly, DH ate it too! Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.

Oh my - these were so delicious and you couldn't ask for anything simpler. I couldn't find the dough sheet, so went with the crescent roll dough. The gorgonzola gave such a creamy, savory flavor to the sweetness of the preserves. It complemented each other perfectly. I highly recommend this as an easy, tasty appetizer. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
