    Made this last night for a dinner party. Everyone seemed to like them and one person requested the recipe. I wanted to use the flaky dough sheet listed on the recipe but was unable to find it at our local grocery. I chose to use a pie crust. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
    Great appy! I used pecan chips since that is what I had but otherwise followed the recipe. Was very good and will be made again! Anything with gorgonzola and I am in heaven and shockingly, DH ate it too! Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.

    Oh my - these were so delicious and you couldn't ask for anything simpler. I couldn't find the dough sheet, so went with the crescent roll dough. The gorgonzola gave such a creamy, savory flavor to the sweetness of the preserves. It complemented each other perfectly. I highly recommend this as an easy, tasty appetizer. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

    I made this recipe for a New Year's Eve party that was attended by children and adults. This is a quick-to-assemble dish that is delicious, smells great, and disappears quickly -- a total hit! I used an organic pre-made crescent roll dough, gourmet apricot preserves from the local market, and walnuts instead of pecans (due to allergy). This is an excellent appetizer dish, but it also makes a good lunch or part of a breakfast buffet. I am looking forward to making it again this weekend. Thanks for posting the recipe!!!


I’m a flaky, seamless dough sheet that makes delicious recipes even easier. Spending time with creative cooks to help them make something special out of a few simple ingredients is what I love to do. There are so many great recipes to be made, and so little time!
