Blue Cheese Crescent Spirals

Blue Cheese Crescent Spirals created by GaylaJ

I am always on the look-out for finger food for our many appetizer parties. This recipe came about from my love of Bleu Cheese and my desire to have a nibble that was easy to eat at a standing room only party. Add or reduce cream cheese to bleu cheese ratio to suit your tastes.

    Tasted great - unfortunately, I spaced the rolls too far apart & they spread out, next time I'll put them touching each other; took a reviewers advice & used dental floss instead of thread to cut rolls - worked perfectly. You didn't post an oven temp, so I cooked them @ 350 for 15 min. - should I have baked them at a higher temp?

    Holy Cow! What a bite-sized delight! So good, my DH and I ate only these for dinner one night. I like the idea to add cracked black pepper.

    Made these for a Christmas party - I really upped the blue cheese since I didn't think it had enough of a blue cheese flavor. I also sprinkled the dough with dried cranberries before rolling. The combination of blue cheese and cranberries tasted great. Overall good recipe.

    wow, how yummy and pretty!!! i made these up ahead of time for thanksgiving and used the string method to cut them (too cool!!). after i made them, i froze them and then placed in a large ziplock until thanksgiving day. was a tasty and extremely easy recipe to put together!! i made the recipe exactly but added lots of cracked black pepper, a touch of minced red onions and used the crescent dough sheets to make it even easier. thanks again, this is a keeper!!!
