These Crescent Bacon Cheese Tartlets get two thumbs up from me! They are really easy to make and are a great party appetizer or lunch with a side salad. I will admit to being one of the few people who doesn’t actually care for bacon. Gasp! I know…shocking, right? Real bacon bits in salads or in appetizers I can handle but I could never just sit down and eat strips of bacon for breakfast. Even though I’m not a fan of bacon, I really enjoy these appetizers. I bet these would be a hit with kids for lunch too!

One of my favorite party desserts is this Cinnamon Bun Cheese Ball served with shortbread cookies on the side. This is perfect for a ladies tea party. It tastes like dipping cookies in cinnamon bun icing…drool!
