    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.


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
