This is a very simple recipe to whip up! Let’s walk through it together so you can see just how easy. First, preheat the oven to 375°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out pre-made crescent dough and place 1 tsp. of red currant jam in the center of the wide base.

And then top with a cube of the Cello Artisan Parmesan Cheese. This is a fantastic cheese for this particular recipe. Cello Artisan Parmesan has a bold, nutty flavor that balances beautifully with the sweetness of the dates and currants. Plus the fact that the cheese is aged for 12 months, means it has a lovely texture that is quite perfectly suited to a baked good.

Next, roll the crescent dough tightly to close and pinch on each end to seal. Place on the cookie sheet and brush with egg wash.

Make sure to find Cello cheese at your local ShopRite or Sprouts in the refrigerated cheese aisle. So tell me, what’s your favorite appetizer to serve at a holiday party?
