I have always been a fan of this crescent rolls appetizer recipe. From the flaky buttery crust to the delicious fillings inside, this is a classic during the holiday season.
When I host parties I find it is easiest to offer an array of appetizers instead of a sit-down meal. This allows guests to mingle and visit with each other and still have delicious food.
If you are ever lacking appetizer ideas, head over to my appetizer recipe page and look at the selection and try out something new. I promise you’ll find something new and delicious to serve your guests or to take to a friend’s party.
Christmas Wreath Crescent Rolls Appetizer Recipe
WW BLUE POINTS: 6 points per serving
6 oz. PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese softened
1/4 cup Sour Cream
4 slices Bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1 Roma tomato, chopped
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 pt. cherry tomatoes
3-4 sprigs of parsley
In a medium-size bowl use a fork to mix together the PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, Bacon, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Unroll the crescent rolls and arrange in a circle, overlapping the crescents. Use the widest edge of the crescent roll on the inside of the circle. Leave a 3″-4″ opening in the center.
Use a small spoon to spread the cream cheese mixture around the base of the circle. Bring the points of the crescent roll up and over the cream cheese tucking the ends into the bottom of the roll, pinching to seal.
In a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the top of the wreath with egg.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until the wreath is a nice, golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Remove from cookie tray and place on serving tray.
Place tomatoes and parsley in the center of wreath. Cut into small wedges when ready to serve.
Christmas Wreath Crescent Rolls Appetizer Tips
When you are laying out the crescent rolls be sure to overlap the edges just slightly. You’ll want to leave a 3-4″ circle in the center as shown above.
Don’t rush when separating the crescent rolls and it won’t tear apart easily.
Spread the filling only around the base of the circle.
There are tons of filling options, but for the holidays I prefer those with sausage and cheese as they just scream Christmas to me.
The one shown is a cream cheese mixture you’ll love!
Bring the points of the crescent roll to the center and press into the bottom of the roll and pinch to seal. Making your own crescent rolls appetizer recipes is this simple.
