Recipe: Garlic and Herb Cheese Bundles

This is recipe for Garlic and Herb Cheese Bundles is a quick and easy hors’dourve. I like simple things that I can throw together on a moment’s notice … and this fits the bill nicely. It’s great for unexpected guests. They will also make a great addition to a variety of snacks for a party.

They're made with Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough and miniature Alouette Garlic and Herb cheese logs.

You can use Pillsbury Creations pastry dough sheets too… I just always have crescent rolls on hand.. we like them with supper sometimes… so I used what I had.

This recipe has only two ingredients and you can make them in about twenty minutes… start to finish.

You can substitute other kinds of cheeses if you prefer.

Recipe: Garlic and Herb Cheese Bundles

All you need:

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 pkg, (5 oz.) Alouette Garlic and Herb Cheese Logs

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Open the can and unroll the crescent dough and place it on a cutting board.

Press the perforations together.

Using a sharp knife, cut along the seams to make 4 large squares.

Then cut each square in half.

Slice the cheese logs into ¼ inch thick slices.

Place 1 slice on each dough square.

Pull the corners up over the cheese and pinch the dough closed. You don't have to make them perfect, they smooth out when baking.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 9 minutes (or until golden brown.

They look great! Wish I had seen this before I made those boring Turkey sandwiches for a reception last night!! I am making a mental note of this. Thanks.

Do you think these could be made ahead of time and frozen (frozen before baked)? We are having a graduation party for my daughter and they look like a wonderful hors'dourve.

Hi Patricia!

I have never frozen unbaked crescent roll dough... I'm not sure if it would rise properly... but... with that said... I would recommend you try it prior to the event... crescent rolls are certainly inexpensive enough to try this... if you do let me know how it worked... I will try it when I get back home... we are currently out of town..

I definitely wouldn't bake them ahead... I just don't think they would be top quality that way..

You could prepare them several hours ahead and refrigerate them .. then bake them when you need them... this would be my choice of method if the freezing of the raw dough doesn't work well

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you decided to do and how it turned out...

My daughter and I made some over the weekend and cooked some and froze some. We thawed out the frozen ones and baked them - they turned out good! I did wrap them individually before I froze them as we only froze a handful but if I was freezing several, I would lay them out on a cookie sheet and flash freeze them and then put in a freezer bag. So, pleasant surprise - they turned out delicious after freezing! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Hi, I love the sound of this recipe but we do not have anything like the crescent rolls in a can, here in Australia. What could I use as a alternative?

Thanks Patricia!... you're right a terrific pleasant surprise... thanks so much for letting me know how they turned out.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Bern...

The only suggestion I can make is look in the refrigerated dairy section or the freezer section of your grocery store for refrigerated puff pastry dough.. while it isn't exactly like our canned Pillsbury crescent dough I think it would be a suitable substitution...

I would offer to make a field trip to Australia (I have always wanted to go there) but the keeper of the household finances would nix that idea...

Please let me know what you find.. i would like to be able to add the information to the recipe for my Australian readers.

Have a great day!
