Easy but elegant appetizer. I also always double the recipe. They won't last long.

I have been making these appetizers for years and you would not believe how quickly they get eaten! It is originally from the Pillsbury website. I usually make two batches. It is great because you get 64 appetizers out of two cans of crescent rolls. My family and friends request these all the time for gatherings. You must try them!

Great.. I used some parmesean/mozzerella cheese spread- bacon bits, and diced black olives.. I found that they needed to set up a bit after they came out of the oven.
