  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Unroll crescent dough to form 4 rectangles. Place 2 of the rectangles, side by side, on nonstick baking sheet. Firmly press seams and perforations together to seal. Reserve remaining dough for decorative garnish.
  • Cut block of cream cheese horizontally in half. Spread pesto onto bottom half of cream cheese; cover with tomatoes. Top with remaining cream cheese to form sandwich. Place in centre of dough. Bring up ends of dough around all sides of cream cheese to enclose completely; pinch ends of dough together to seal. Place, seam side down, on baking sheet. Cut remaining crescent dough into small fun shapes, such as leaves or fruit. Arrange on top of dough.
  • Bake 20 min. Serve with Christie Wheat Thins Crackers and fresh vegetables.


Instead of using leftover crescent roll dough for decorations, shape into crescents and bake as directed on package. Cool, then place in airtight container or resealable bag and store at room temperature until ready to serve.


  • Makes 16 servings, 2 Tbsp. each.
