In Defiance, Ohio, Phylis Behringer seasons refrigerated dough with garlic powder before baking them into golden Gouda-filled cups. It's hard to believe the delectable little appetizers come from just three ingredients.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 ounces Gouda cheese, cut into 24 pieces


  • 1. Unroll crescent dough into one long rectangle; seal seams and perforations. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Cut into 24 pieces; lightly press onto the bottom and up the sides of ungreased miniature muffin cups.
  • 2. Bake at 375° for 3 minutes. Place a piece of cheese in each cup. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
