    40 appetizers

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot (about 1 medium)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, mayonnaise and mustard until blended. Stir in cheese, carrot, celery, green onions and garlic. Gently fold in crab.
  • Unroll crescent dough and roll into a 12-1/2x10-in. rectangle. Cut each sheet into twenty 2-1/2-in. squares.
  • Spoon a heaping teaspoonful of cream cheese mixture diagonally over half of each square to within 1/2 in. of edges. Fold 1 corner of dough over filling to the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Pinch seams to seal; press edges with a fork. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes.
