Crab Crescent Triangles

When some friends who love crab were planning a party, I created this recipe for them. The comforting baked bundles wrap up a cheesy seafood filling in convenient crescent roll dough. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

  • Makes
    40 appetizers


  • 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
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (6 ounces) lump crabmeat, drained
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated seamless crescent dough sheet


  • 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.

    Slice 10 inch side in half and then slice each half in half for 4 equal lengths each 2-1/2 in. wide.Then have to cut each of the 4 pieces in 5 equal pieces along the 12-1/2 length. Probably easiest to cut 2-1/2 off bottom edge. Then half remainder in 2 sections. Then half each of those. Results 20 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 pieces.(Just thinking of how to do this. Figured I'd share my thoughts in case someone else was puzzling over this).
