Recipe by Denise

I received this recipe from Pillsbury and have not tried it yet, but it sounds simple and delicious. Many variations here - shrimp, chicken, etc.

I made Shrimp and Pesto Crescents. They worked out fabulous. I used my homemade pesto sauce (I grew lots of basil this year in my garden) and jumbo shrimp. I topped the crescents with a sprinkle of parm. cheese. Perfect appetizer. Thank you for posting!
