The Cheese Hours D'oeurves

The Cheese Hours D'oeurvesThese cheese, prosciutto and dried cranberry filled crescent roll 'quesadillas' make delicious hors d'oeuvres.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 (8-ounce each) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 ounces Fontina, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or ham, diced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary - divided use
1/3 cup dried cranberries or cherries, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Press contents of one can of crescent roll dough onto parchment paper to form a 9 x 12-inch rectangle, taking care to seal seams of dough.
    Top dough with Fontina, prosciutto or ham, dried cranberries, 1/2 of the rosemary and sugar.
  2. On another sheet of parchment, press remaining can of dough into a 9 x 12-inch rectangle. Using parchment paper, transfer dough to cover cheese mixture. Carefully peel away parchment paper. Press seams closed. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes at 375°F (190°C) or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. To serve, cut into 12 squares and then cut each square in half diagonally to make 24 pieces.

Makes 24 servings.
