When I make these I use softened cream cheese that I've added a little homemade dry ranch seasoning to instead of bottled ranch dressing. It helps keep the fillings on the crescent roll dough a little better and it isn't as wet when you go to cut it. Double or triple this recipe--these go fast! Read More

Very tasty pretty little treats. The first batch came out dry (2 tbl spoons wasn't enough. The 2nd bath was great I left out the ranch dressing and used cream cheese. Wonderful! Read More

These sound good so I've bought all the ingredients (cream cheese makes more sense than ranch) & getting ready to try them. Freezing them prior to cutting makes total sense. But I'm wondering if anyone knows if you could actually freeze them OVERNIGHT so that you could prep a day ahead & then cook them right before a party or if that would destroy the "rising" factor of the dough?? Or if I should just make them right away refrigerate them and then warm them up in the microwave (or oven) just before the party?!?!? Thanks Read More

These are delicious! For ease in cutting I put them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes first. I made 1/2 of the recipe as written with bacon and used deli ham finely chopped in the other half. We couldn't decide which we liked better..... they were both good. For the reviewer who questioned cutting the short (4" side) that is correct. You cut them in 1/2" slices which means 4" equals 8 appetizers. Read More

Surprisingly these turned out well even on the first try. My husband ate way more than I expected and I know he will love it when I make them again. They are a little messy to make with the croissants. After I rolled and cut them they didn't look like they would stay together. They cooked really well and even. I added more onion than required but that is my preference. I really like the onion in it without it they seemed like it would be boring. I highly recommend this recipe and can be taken even further now that I know how simple they were to make. Second attempt turned out even better. This time I put Pam on the baking sheet. The first time they stuck really badly but I was able to pry them off. I also bake the bacon first which is much easier than frying and very easy clean up. This time I prepared early so I put them in the fridge before cutting them. I think this made it a little easier to cut and you definitely want to use a serrated knife to cut them. They were still a bit messy and you don't think they are going to stay together but it all melts together and is so delicious. I highly recommend this recipe to everyone. It is one of the simplest great tasting recipes that we have had in a while. Read More

Love this idea; I plan to try it with a little Northwest flair by using smoked salmon capers and cream cheese! Read More

This receipe was very good! I did use a whole package of ranch dressing mix and mixed it with the entire 8 ounce package of Philadelphia cream cheese. I used a half package of Philadelphia cream cheese for each package of crescent rolls. It turned out very good and very moist. My family loved it! Will make it again. Read More
