Servings 24

Ingredients

  • 1 16 ounce tub chive and onion cream cheese
  • 3 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 3 tbs dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 tube crescent dough sheet
  • 1 egg white optional

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375. 
  • In a bowl, combine cream cheese, bacon, cheddar cheese, cranberries and pecans. Set aside. 
  • Roll out dough onto a rectangular sheet of wax paper. Make four cuts top to bottom, and six cuts across the width. This yields 24 dough squares. 
  • Using a small spoon, scoop a little bit of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each square. Then, working with one square at a time, meet the four corners to the center and press together. Brush squares with egg whites, if desired. Bake 8-12 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Serve warm.
