These were so easy I preped them before the party and cooked them at my friends house. Only complaint, they were a bit dry. I think I would use a little more cream cheese next time.

These were very tasty. One note of caution...make sure you leave your crescent rolls in the fridge until you're ready for them. I took them out too soon, and when I sliced them, the dough was soft, so they came out looking more like little football shapes instead of nice round pinwheels. Still good, though.
