    ms_bold's Note:

    I am always on the look-out for finger food for our many appetizer parties. This recipe came about from my love of Bleu Cheese and my desire to have a nibble that was easy to eat at a standing room only party. Add or reduce cream cheese to bleu cheese ratio to suit your tastes.

      I haven't tried these...Yet! I wanted to mention a technique to cutting these that some newer cooks may not be aware of. Get a piece of thread, 8" or so, slip under roll then tie your thread until it cuts through the dough, your spiral should be perfectly cut without smashing the roll when trying to cut. I hope these instructions are clear and most of all helpful.

      wow, how yummy and pretty!!! i made these up ahead of time for thanksgiving and used the string method to cut them (too cool!!). after i made them, i froze them and then placed in a large ziplock until thanksgiving day. was a tasty and extremely easy recipe to put together!! i made the recipe exactly but added lots of cracked black pepper, a touch of minced red onions and used the crescent dough sheets to make it even easier. thanks again, this is a keeper!!!

      Holy Cow! What a bite-sized delight! So good, my DH and I ate only these for dinner one night. I like the idea to add cracked black pepper.
