A friend from work had a dinner party and made these wonderful croissants. The whole group asked for the recipe as we ate these up. These are SO good that you might want to consider doubling as everyone wants seconds!

This is it! I remember this from my childhood. I made this recipe with reduced-fat cream cheese and reduced-fat crescent rolls, and used Pam instead of butter. I also used red onion as that is what I had. They came out great! Thanks so much for posting, it's a great nostalgic dish.
