This is actually a two recipe post, bacon cream cheese puffs AND frosted candy corn sugar cookies! You’re welcome.
Let’s start off with our appetizer: Bacon Cream Cheese Puffs! There are not enough words to describe how delicious these are! They are so amazingly easy too! Bacony goodness mixed with flavorful cream cheese baked inside a crescent roll… sign me up!
This would be a perfect appetizer for the Holidays! You ARE putting together your Holiday menus already right?? Or is that just me? Oh well, bookmark this one and thank me later!
Step by Step Directions
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Slice bacon in 1/2 inch slices, slowly crisp over medium low heat until super crispy.
In a bowl, place the cream cheese and seasoning, mix to combine.
Drain the bacon fat and add the bacon to the cream cheese mixture. Mix to combine.
Lay out the crescent roll dough into two long rectangles. Pinch the seams close and evenly place half the cream cheese mixture down the center of each dough. Wrap both sides of the dough around the mixture. Pinch the dough at the ends and seal it as well as possible on all seams. Cut each log into 8 equal pieces. Lay out the pieces about an inch apart and using a fork, pinch the open seams closed.
Bake for 9 minute or until golden brown on top. Let cool slightly, serve and enjoy!
I cannot believe how easy these are, you can even serve them as a quick weeknight meal with a salad! Prep time is only 10 minutes so you will have this dinner on the table in 20!
Be careful though and don’t eat these immediately out of the oven, that cream cheese filling is like lava! Delicious lava.
Now, on to the Frosted Candy Corn Cookies, yay!
How cute are these? Super easy too, I used Dollar General’s Clover Valley’s Non Dairy Creamer to make them and it gives a nice richness to these cookie mix sugar cookies!
Heat oven to 375*. Place the cookie mix with the butter and creamer in a bowl and stir until a soft dough forms.
Place rounded teaspoons sized dough balls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Slightly press down on the top of each cookie so there is a flat surface. Sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar.
Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, until slightly golden brown on the edges. Let cool 2 minutes then remove to wired rack to cool completely.
Divide the frosting evenly and dye one 3rd yellow and another 3rd orange. Frost cookies so they look like candy corn! Serve and enjoy.
See? Super cute and easy! Total prep time is literally about 3 minutes and cooking/frosting time is around 15 minutes (not including cooling time!) So festive too for a Thanksgiving or Halloween spread! Adorbs.
