Pillsbury and MyBlogSpark provided me with a couple packages of crescent rolls and asked me to try out one of the appetizer recipes on the Pillbsury site. When I saw that Baked Brie was one of my choices, I knew that was the one I had to try. I’ve been wanting to make baked brie ever since I had it for the first time last winter. I was asked to put my own personal spin on the recipe, so I followed the advice of some of the recipe commenters, and added in some brown sugar. The result was a warm, cheesy, sugary, and absolutely delicious appetizer. I previously had baked brie with puff pastry, but I think I like it with crescent rolls even better. It was warm, but still firm so you could cut a piece and pick it up and eat it. I served it with apple slices, and the two complemented each other perfectly.
Through Pillsbury and MyBlogSpark, I’m giving away a prize pack consisting of 2 coupons for Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dough and a 3 piece holiday platter set to serve your new creations to your guests. For a chance to win, leave a comment below with your favorite way to use crescent rolls. The winner will be announced on Thursday, 1/14. Contest is over, thanks for all your comments! I used a random number generator and the winner is Nazarina A from giddy gastronome! Congratulations Nazarina, please send me your address and I”ll get the package sent out to you
