1/2 (8 ounce) package
refrigerated crescent rolls
1 (8 ounce) package
dried dill weed
egg yolk, beaten
With the dill alone, this can be alittle bland. I fried and drained a few slices of bacon and crumbled them into the cream cheese along with green onions. Then I shaped the cream cheese into a 1 inch high cylinder shape and sprinkled the dill and a dash of garlic powder on top. After covering the cheese with the dough, I opened another pkg. of crescent rolls and made a beautiful leaf design on top. Glazed with milk instead of egg (more shiny) and received RAVE REVIEWS!!!
I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to make this work, so I made a bite size variation where I mixed the cream cheese & dill together, spread it over the crescents and cut into bite size pieces before baking. Not exactly the same purpose of this recipe, but it was the best I could do.
Sooooooo easy! I LOADED the cream cheese with dill weed and garlic powder. I didn't measure at all, just made sure it was completely covered. I lightly pressed the seasonings into the cream cheese before wrapping as well. I used milk instead of egg yolk on the dough. This turned out beautifully and all of my guests raved! I ended up making this for several parties because friends and family requested it! Will definitely make again and again.
This is very good. I don't care for dill, as a substitute I used Hidden Valley Ranch Dips packet as the seasoning and served with Ritz Sticks.
This was great. I love cream cheese and this was a great way to enjoy it. The cresent roll dough goes great with the cream cheese. I used fresh dill, and was very generous with it. I also used garlic powder, and that gave it a good kick. Make sure you seal it well. Mine came open, but the cheese didn't leak out so it was ok. The best part about this recipe is that the options are endless. Next time I think I will put lox in the middle of the cream cheese and dill on the outside.
I had used this recipe for a holiday party. It was so popular I had to make one more batch while everyone was there.
I changed the recipe a little though. I didn't serve it with the apples and crackers. I made this appetizer into cream cheese bites by wrapping the cream cheese totally in the cresent rolls (like a present) and cut it in bites when it came out of the oven and had cooled down. I served it with Marinara sauce. It was the most popular appetizer at my party.
I really did not expect to like this, but I will make this again and again. I added some chopped green onions and just flipped the whole thing over on the cookie sheet so even if it opened up while baking the cheese would have nowhere to go. I think I will add green olives the next time.
Made this for a Super Bowl party at Church. Received alot of complements. I added garlic powder as well. Next time I will add more dill. Very easy and looks like you put a great deal of work into it. Will make it again!!
