The smell of flakey pastry crust wafting through the kitchen is sure to capture the attention of party guests. And, the first bite lives up to its olfactory promises with warm, flakey pastry wrapped around cream cheese boldly elevated with blue cheese crumbles and bejeweled with sweet-tart dried cherries and salty, nutty pistachios. The drizzle of a local honey just before serving puts this this easy holiday appetizer over the top, quite likely making it your new, most-requested recipe.
To ensure you don’t run out of Blue Cheese, Cherry & Pistachio Crescent Bites during a Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve or other special celebration, consider preparing two batches of the dough “rolls.” One to cook right before guests arrive for immediate serving and the other to slice and bake (in just 12 minutes!) when the tray run low.
