    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    If you do not have a jelly roll pan, this looks good in a pizza pan. Your most time spent in this recipe is the cooling in the fridge.

      This is very similar to the recipe my mil gave me. The recipe I have calls for only 1 package of cream cheese and 1 cup of mayo. However, I only had about a half cup of mayo so I subbed a half cup of sour cream and it was still very good. The tip my mil gave me was to cut the crescent rolls before adding the cream cheese mixture. This way you don't have to worry about the toppings getting messed up in the end. To make this easier, I lined the pan with foil, sprayed with Baker's Joy, and then pressed the dough into the pan. When the dough had baked, I moved the foil lined crust to a cooling rack. I cut bars with a pizza cutter when cooled and then moved the crust back into the pan to keep the bars from separating when I spread the toppings. Worked like a charm. I'm taking them to a church potluck today but these were a great addition to my wedding reception's buffet too.

      These are excellent! I have made these many times over the years. My sister-in-law taught me a trick with these: After adding the shredded cheese, before cutting, stick them under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese; it holds the toppings on! Also, I bake my crust on parchment paper, then I lift the whole thing off the pan to cool. It helps make it easier to cleanly cut after you have added the toppings.

      I baked the base longer -- until browned -- to avoid that doughy consistency that these bars can sometimes have. And I served the bars after just a couple of hours in the fridge, and my guests and I actually liked them better that way. I halved the recipe and found it was enough for about 10 people as part of an hors d'oeuvres spread.
