The holidays mean lots of parties and
this easy appetizer recipe will be perfect if you are responsible for

What you'll need:
- 2 8-ounce tubes of crescent rolls*
- 1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 1 teaspoon of dill weed
- 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cups of broccoli florets (freshly chopped)
- 1 cup of celery (finely chopped)
- 1/2 cup of sweet red pepper (finely chopped)
- Celery leaves
* found in refrigerator section of
What to do
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Next, remove the crescent roll dough from
its packaging (make sure you don't unroll it). Cut each tube into eight
slices and then arrange the slices in a circle (about 11 inches in
diameter.) I've found it very handy to make your circle on an pizza pan
(ungreased - 14-inch size works well.)
Then, bake it for approximately 15-20
minutes or until the dough turns a lovely golden color. Cool for 5
minutes or so before gently removing your crescent dough wreath to a
serving platter. Then, cool it completely.
In a small mixing bowl, beat the sour
cream, cream cheese, garlic powder and dill until nice and smooth. Then,
spread the mixture over the wreath and top with the chopped celery,
broccoli, and red pepper. You can complete this pretty picture by making
a bow with the leftover celery leaves.
