Crescent Cream Cheese Appetizers

This is seriously one of the simplest appetizers to put together EVER (I know I have said that a few times already in just a handful of posts, but I’m serious!)  I love simple, delicious options that you can put together quickly when you have people over.  I love entertaining and cooking, but I hate to be stuck in the kitchen and miss any part of a party.  This appetizers solves that completely.  I’m not sure where this recipe come from for sure, but my sister found it years ago and it has been a staple for get togethers ever since!

1 block cream cheese

1 canister crescent dough

dill (I usually just use dried, but I’m sure fresh would be amazing also)

Preheat the over to 350.  Unroll crescent dough and press seems together.  You will actually only need about half of the dough.  Sprinkle the entire block of cream cheese with dill.  Please cream cheese block in center of the dough and wrap placing on the baking sheet seem side down.  You can definitely jazz this up by adding a cut out made with cookie cutters (or a creative person and a knife) and the left over dough.  Cook for about 12-15 minutes until the dough is golden brown.

Serve with crackers and/ or veggies and/ or apple slices.  I promise people will be fighting to scrap up the last bits of this!

This is also an incredible recipe to adapt; you could definitely use your favorite herb in place of dill.  I’m sure it would even be delicious if you would garden vegetable cream cheese!
