How to Make Cream Cheese Encroute


  1. Slice cream cheese horizontally and lay out flat.
  2. Spread pesto over one half of cheese...then add tomatoes and garlic. Lay other half of cream cheese on top.
  3. Flatten out you crescent rolls so there are no seams. Lay filled block of cheese in the middle of dough and wrap.
  4. Seam side down on baking dish. Mix together egg and water to make a "wash" and brush over the dough.
