Crescent Wreath

Crescent Wreath by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Every Christmas I try tho think of cute and fun appetizers to serve on Christmas day. Along with a little cheese ball snowman, I like to make this pretty wreath. I love it because it looks impressive, bu t is made in only a matter of minutes with the help of Pillsbury Crescent Dough.

This little wreath is made simply with cream cheese and a few fresh veggies baked in crescent dough. I used a mixture of fresh broccoli, chopped spinach and roasted red peppers in this wreath. If you want to add more flavor, add a few tablespoons each of chopped crumbled bacon and/or green onions.

For a quick and easy garnish, I took a few ripe tomatoes from my windowsill along with some rosemary from the herb garden.

    Hi!
    Great idea! It must be delicious.
    Could You write me what kind of pastry is it? Pastries of this brand are not available in Poland. It is something like for apple pie?

      The dough is the same you would make crescent rolls with. You could substitute homemade crescent roll dough cut in triangles.
