PECAN AND CHEESE CRESCENT BITES
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
cup plum jam
cup diced dried fruit and raisin mixture, chopped
oz Cambozola cheese, cut into 24 small slices
Heat oven to 375°F.
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, or spray lightly with cooking spray.
Unroll dough into 1 long rectangle. Gently press perforations to seal.
Stir jam to soften; spread over dough. Sprinkle with dried fruits. Starting with one long side, roll up dough. With serrated knife, cut into 24 slices; place, cut side down, on paper-lined cookie sheet.
Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool slightly, about 2 minutes.
Top each with slice of Cambozola cheese and pecan half. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Notes: This is an old recipe from Pillsbury.
Cambozola cheese is a German cheese similar to Gorgonzola and Camembert. If you prefer, you can crumble blue cheese over these rather than use the Cambozola.
Also good with a very thin slice of fresh apple or pear added before the cheese and pecan.
