Patti's notes for this recipe:
The GIKLES stands for - Get In Kitchen Leah E Smith. Her friends came up with this name after they fell in love with the recipe!
There are always kids coming and going at our home but this is one of the mainstays they look for! Funny thing is that I prepare most of the time so Leah can hang out with her friends.

Cook sausage then drain and crumble. Mix sausage and pepper flakes into the softened cream cheese. Mix well.
Arrange crescent triangles in a circle on a round baking stone or a cookie sheet, with large end overlapping in center and points heading away from the center.
Place the mixture all the way around the middle until all of mixture is used. Bring the peaks of the crescent rolls over and seal them in the middle.
Combine melted butter and garlic together. Brush over the crescent rolls and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
