PULL-APART CHOCOLATE CHIP CHEESECAKE CRESCENT CHRISTMAS TREE
2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
6 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Separate dough into 16 triangles. Use pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut each triangle in half lengthwise to get 32 triangles.
In medium bowl, mix cream cheese and powdered sugar with spoon until well blended. Spoon a generous teaspoon of the cheese mixture on shortest side of each triangle; add a rounded 1/2 teaspoon chocolate chips.
Roll up each crescent, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to opposite point. Using photo as a guide, place crescents next to each other in tree-shaped pattern on parchment lined cookie sheet, starting with top and working way to bottom trunk.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired.
Line your pan with parchment paper to catch any filling that may spill out of crescents while baking.
Use a pizza cutter to cut crescent dough.
Use a fine-mesh sieve to sprinkle crescent tree with additional powdered sugar.
