Crescent rolls make this snack a snap to prepare and bake. These are great appetizers to fix for last-minute parties or unexpected guests.

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 can (about 6 ounces) minced clams, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 2 rolls (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Sesame seeds, optional

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375°.

Separate crescent roll dough into 16 triangles; cut each triangle in half. Measure 1 teaspoonful of the cream cheese and clam mixture; place on the end (shortest side, not the point) of a triangle of dough. Starting with the short side of the triangle, roll up, pinching edges slightly. If desired, gently roll the snacks in sesame seeds. Place the rolled snacks, seam-side down, on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, or until golden brown.
