PEPPER JELLY DANISH

I made these for friends one morning - and honestly, I found them a little disappointing.
The recipe was adapted from one which used home made pastry and local pepper jelly with honey - I'm sure the originals were fabulous, but I found these bland and uninspiring.

PEPPER JELLY DANISH


4 (8 ounce) cans of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 (8ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup pepper jelly
1 tablespoon of honey

Unroll one can of crescent roll dough onto a lightly floured surface, divide into 2 pieces, separating at center perforation. Press each piece into a 7-inch square (I made mine smaller). Bring corners to center, partially overlapping each, gently press corners into centers using thumb, making a small indentation. Repeat process with remaining cans of crescent rolls. Transfer to lightly greased baking sheets.
Stir together cream cheese and egg, stir together pepper jelly and honey. Spoon 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into the center of each dough circle, and top with 2 teaspoons of pepper jelly mixture.
Bake at 375F for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
