Crescent Wreath

Crescent Wreath

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.

    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.

    Oh, of course. Angie, thank you for the explanation. It looked to me like a pastry but I don’t know how I could think about it.

    I stumbled on this recipe from Pintrest and have made this a handful of times for the holiday season. This is a big hit with friends and family! Everyone loves it! It is so creative and tastes great! Best part, its put together in about 10 minutes! Can’t wait to serve this again next Christmas!

    Just wanted to say I’ve made this recipe a few times and I love it! It’s easy to put together and always generates a wow and it’s even been requested again after I made it up for a few Christmas get-togethers. Very tasty and feels very fancy with all the veggies! If anyone wants to do a dairy-free version, I tried using Tofutti’s “Better Than Cream Cheese” instead of the regular cream cheese and it came out great, maybe even better than regular cream cheese! Thanks again for sharing this gem 🙂
