The flavor of these is AMAZING. If you're not a blue cheese lover perhaps these aren't the appetizer for you (but, then, you wouldn't be investigating this recipe if you didn't like blue cheese, would you?). I was skeptical of the amount of filling/apple compared to the sixteen really skinny crescent rolls but it worked out just right. Also, if you're tempted to make extra filling, as I always do because I like lots of "stuff" in my recipes, don't. I made extra and had too much. The amount the recipe lists is the right amount. I didn't make any changes to the recipe and they were perfect. The filling is thick enough that it will not bleed all over your baking pan from the open rolls and the apples bake to soft; but not mushy.


With a couple changes, these were a big hit! For the filling, I used 4 oz cream cheese and two tablespoons chunky blue cheese dressing instead of the crumbled blue cheese. I also used fresh rosemary and left out the pecans (my guests were not nut fans). A great fall appetizer!


I modified this slightly. I didn't have rosemary, so I used thyme. I chopped one apple and added it to the rest of the filling. I sealed the corners of the crescent so that it formed a little ball. These were fast, very tasty and not too heavy. The strongest flavor is the blue cheese, so I would recommend this to blue cheese lovers only.
