1 – 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese softened
8 slices bacon crisply cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon milk
2 cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon cold water

Heat oven to 375⁰ F.
Beat cream cheese, bacon, Parmesan cheese, onion, parsley and milk in small mixing bowl at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended.

Separate dough into eight rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal. Spread each rectangle with 2 rounded measuring tablespoonfuls cream cheese mixture, cut each rectangle in half diagonally; repeat with opposite corners. Cut in half crosswise to form six triangles. Roll up triangles starting at short ends to make crescent. Or…actually Christie and I just saw these made into one big roll…so you could spread it out and pinch the perforations together, spread your cream cheese mixture, roll up the whole thing like a dessert roll and cut 1” sections like you would cookies from prepared cookie dough…sounds much easier) ;0)

Place on greased cookie sheet; brush with combined egg and water. Sprinkle with poppy seed, if desired. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes about 4 dozen.


I Wish That I Could Wrap Up Christmas

I wish that I could wrap up all the love and Holiday cheer
That comes along with Christmas and with New Year’s every year,
Pack it in a pretty box and put it on my shelf
And pull it down again each year and give it to myself.

I wish that I could tie up all my favorite carols with twine,
Wind around some ribbon, too, and for twelve months call them mine
Until the next Yuletide came when the sounds again could be unfurled
And untie every single one then give them to the world.
