Creamy Italian Crescent

I am so excited to be participating in a Pillsbury Celebrity Cook-Along
hosted by: Lynn @
I love - love - love this incredible blog!
So fun and the recipes are always outstanding.
You are invited to the party! 
Go check out it out and you can be happier than a pig in mud too!!
I am making a scrumptious appetizer recipe that
I got from my beloved friend - Mary Ann Hagerty!

Creamy Italian Crescent
2 pkg. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 8oz. Cream Cheese, soft
1 t Italian Seasoning
1/2 pkg. Italian Dressing (dry)
Fresh Basil
Unroll crescents - press edges together to make 2 rectangles.
Place one dough rectangle on a baking sheet.
Mix together cream cheese with dry dressing and Italian Seasoning.
Place creamy mixture on top of dough in an oval shape.
Place second dough rectangle on top and seal edges.
Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer to a gorgeous platter and garnish with fresh basil.
Slice and smile!  Mmmmmm - so delicious!
For a special savory twist you can be so creative with this basic recipe.
Add sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, Parmesan, Mozzarella,
olives, spinach, mushrooms, Italian sausage....see the
possibilities are endless.
You can also go sweet by adding different fruits, jams,
preserves, cinnamon sugar, pie fillings, nutella...
my mouth is watering!!

I am linking to the following parties:
