Veggie Crescent Christmas Wreath Appetizer

Friday, December 20, 2013

This is a very easy and festive Christmas appetizer that's great to bring to any party.  I love it because I make it on the same dish as my Christmas Breakfast Pastry Ring, so when traveling I can easily bring one and make the other dish when I'm there. My platter is this one from Crate and Barrel.

Veggie Crescent Christmas Wreath Appetizer
2 (8 ounce) packages crescent rolls1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened1 cup sour cream1 packed ranch dressing mix1 broccoli (1 small crown chopped into small florets)cherry tomatoes1 sweet red pepper 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Remove the crescent roll dough from its packaging BUT DON'T UNROLL IT. Cut each tube into 1/2" slices and arrange the slices in a circle on ungreased baking sheet.Bake dough wreath for 15-20 minutes or until the dough turns a lovely golden color. Cool completely.

In small bowl, beat the sour cream and cream cheese together until smooth. Mix in ranch seasoning. Refrigerate until ready to spread on wreath.

When ready to assemble, spread the cheese mixture over the baked wreath. Arrange broccoli florets and tomatoes around the wreath to decorate.  Cut the pepper and arrange on wreath to resemble a red bow.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Here is a close-up of the pepper bow:

To easily transport, place a plastic cup in the middle of the wreath and cover with foil.  It will arrive in perfect condition!

  1. This did not go over well at my Christmas eve party....way too thick....too much crescent roll. Next time I will go with the traditional way to make this with the crescent roll layed flat.
