Turkey Cranberry Appetizers

With it being Thanksgiving-time and all, nothing says it better than some turkey and cranberries. Zachary shared a recipe yesterday that combined those two ingredients perfectly and I'm here to share another one of my favorite ways to eat this delightful concoction. The best part is? They're easy to prepare and you can eat them with your fingers! 


I love me a good appetizer and this one is definitely good. Nay, great. I was honestly surprised by how much I liked it. Out of pure shame, I'm not going to tell you how many I ate, but let's just say it was more than seven and less than nine. ;) I'm tellin' ya...I don't know what I would do without my Pilsbury Cookbook. I've found so many good things in there! Glad I can share this one with ya today.

Ingredients: 
  • 2 cans (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 oz. sliced turkey {You can get it fresh from the deli or if you're cheap like me, you can just buy sandwich meat. It tastes just as good!}
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries, sweetened
  • 6 oz. (1-1/2 cup) Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp. salted butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary leaves, crushed

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper.
  3. Unroll 1 can of dough onto cookie sheet. {Good luck opening to lil' booger. Makes me jump every time.} Press into 12x8 inch rectangle, sealing perforations.
  4. Top with turkey, cranberries, and cheese to within 1/4 inch of edges.
  5. Unroll the second can of crescent rolls onto another large piece of wax paper.
  6. Press into 11x8 inch rectangle, sealing perforations.
  7. Cut into 10 (8 inch) strips, separating so strips are 1/4 inch apart.
  8. While holding wax paper, turn dough strips upside down over cheese.
  9. Tuck ends of strips under bottom layer of dough.
  10. Brush melted butter over edges and strips of dough.
  11. Top with garlic and rosemary.
  12. Bake 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is set.
  13. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows, then cut each square in half diagonally.

Hope you love them! I can't wait for Thanksgiving to finally get here already!
