Ingredients:

  • 2 (8-oz) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • With wide edge to the center of the pan (points to edge), take 8 pieces and form a circle, corners overlapping about 1 inch.
  • Place remaining 8, match the wide edge on the inside, slightly over lapping. The points will be pointing into the circle of the wreath.
  • *You will have an outer ring of 8 crescent rolls and an inner ring of 8 crescent rolls. The points are going out on the outer layer and pointing in on the inner layer. You will match up wide ends of the crescent rolls in the inner ring of the wreath. *
  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, turkey, celery, cranberries, swiss cheese and pecans.
  • Scoop filling over seams of dough, forming a circle.
  • Beginning in center, lift one dough triangle across filling mixture. Continue alternating with outer triangles, slightly overlapping to form wreath. Tuck last end under first.
