2/3
cup crumbled blue cheese (3 oz)
1/4
cup Smucker’s® Sweet Orange Marmalade

16

1
can (12 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Big & Flaky crescent dinner rolls

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix cream cheese and blue cheese with fork until well blended; set aside.
  2. In 1-quart saucepan, stir marmalade and vinegar over low heat until mixed; stir in figs. Cook over low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until figs are softened. Remove from heat.
  3. Remove crescent dough from package, but do not unroll. Cut roll of dough into 16 slices. On 2 ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 2 inches apart. Press center of each slice to make indentation, 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  4. Place 1 heaping teaspoon cheese mixture into each well. Top cheese with about 1 tablespoon fig mixture and 1 1/2 teaspoon pecans.
