A New Year's Eve app

We had just a couple of friends over for New Year's Eve. I made these little guys (sorry no picture) which were so fast and easy. I made these using the variation suggested on Kraft's website to use pepperoni in place of red peppers - delicious!

Savory Parmesan Bites
(from KraftFoods.com)

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
2 cans (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 cup chopped red peppers
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Heat oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup Parmesan with mixer until well blended.
Separate crescent rolls into 8 rectangles; press perforations together to seal. Spread each with 3 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture. Top with peppers and parsley. Fold 1 long side of each dough rectangle over filling to center; fold again to enclose filling. Cut each into 4 squares. Place, seam-sides down, on baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
Bake 13 to 15 min. or until golden brown.
Variation
Substitute 1 jar (13-1/4 oz.) sliced mushrooms or 1 pkg. (3 oz.) pepperoni slices for the red peppers and parsley.

Wow - looks easy and great! I need to have more crescent rolls on hand so I can make more with them. Who can resist anything baked between buttery croissant dough?!
