I am giving this recipe 4 stars only because of the directions presented. I read and re-read them several times before making it. Because of my difficulty in at first deciphering the instructions, I've also taken the time to post several photos at various stages of the process.
First, you do not need to separate ALL of the crescent rolls; simply detach the rolls into four rectangles (each one = two rolls). Press together the center perforations and lay on your cookie sheet or pizza pan in a daisy-like formation.
Second, scoop 1/2 cup of filling onto the lower edge of the rectangle (closest to the center of the daisy) and folder over the other 2/3's of the pastry and seal into balls, making sure they are adjoining.
In my opinion, making this recipe into a 'wreath' is kind of pointless -- since it is served warm the first thing I did upon removing it from the oven (but after taking the picture!) was to cut it apart for serving. The next time I make this (and I will!) I'll simply bake individual servings. They could be decorated with pastry cut-outs, if desired.
Overall, this is a great recipe for using up leftover turkey. My adult daughter, my husband and three-year-old grandson all liked it, as did I. The only ingredient I modified was using shredded "Italian blend" cheese instead of Swiss because that is what I had on hand.
Tasty, filling, basically healthy -- will definitely make it again sometime!
