This is a delicious appetizer that is just a little bit different. I made mine with light cream cheese, but who would know? It's very satisfying and pretty to look at, too.
I made this yesterday for guests and they were bowled over. It was delicious!!!! I used two pkgs crescent rolls but didn't increase the spread. Next time I will. Great recipe!
This was a big hit at our annual charter school picnic. The kids and adults loved it!
