Nutty Blue Cranberry Sauce Rounds


From Coconut and Lime

Total Time: 20 Minutes
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Makes 8 servings


  • 1 (8 oz) can Pillsbury® Place 'N Bake® refrigerated crescent rounds
  • 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 2 oz blue cheese, crumbled
  • 8 pecan halves


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Remove the rounds from package, separate into 8 rounds. Place rounds on ungreased large cookie sheet. Press down center of each round to make an indentation about 1/4-1/2 inch deep.
  3. Evenly divide the cranberry sauce into each indentation, taking care not to overfill. Top each with a large blue cheese crumble. Add a pecan half to each round, slightly off-center and pressing the pecan slightly into the dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.


  • Love strong cheese? Substitute a hearty Gorgonzola for the blue cheese.
  • Canned or homemade cranberry sauce works wonderfully in this recipe.
