The other week I shared with you my Peanut Butter & Chocolate Reese’s Cookie Bars along with a little about my trip to Pillsbury. I told you all about the photo studios and hanging out there and learning a ton of information.

Today I’ll share with you the rest of the story….

Anyone else remember that line from Paul Harvey?

Ok that’s totally not what you came here for right? In the afternoon I got to go visit the Betty Crocker Kitchens during my visit to Pillsbury. As we entered the kitchens it was like magic fairy dust was coming down around us, soft Christmas music was playing and I was entering heaven. Literally. I half expected a few angels to grace us with their presence. Wait. They did. It was the cooks of Betty Crocker Kitchens! We each were assigned one of the lovely ladies and they got us everything we needed and cleaned up after us. Remember when I said I was entering heaven?! I almost kidnapped my lady!

As we entered we got a quick tour and introduction to the kitchens. Then we paired off into groups and each received a recipe, ours being these AMAZING Kickin’ Spinach Cheese Bites! We also made these yummy Gingerbread-Turtle Thumprint Cookies (mark those for Christmas next year). It inspired my partner in crime Lisa from Wine & Glue to develop these amazing Gingerbread White Fudge Thumprint Cookies. Sinfully good. Trust me, I got to taste them!

Those Kickin’ Spinach bites inspired these tasty Cheesy Olive Puffs! I big, fat puffy heart Crescent Rolls. The buttery, flaky, amazingness gets me every time. We used the Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets in our Spinach Bites and I was in love. I hadn’t ever used it before and it was a dream come true. Instead I was that lady trying to get all my Crescent Roll seams to stay together, which if that’s what floats your boat go for it, but if not then you have to try this Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets!

Cheesy Olive Puffs are little crescent puffs stuffed full of cheese and olives. I’m such a sucker for olives that I knew this was the perfect combination!

They are perfect for your “Big Game” festivities! Go grab your Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets and whip up a batch!

      Thanks Tanya, and they are bite sized so I’d say several but you’d have to fight me for them!
