So this little snack starts off with some pre-made crescent dough. If you are so not into that, don’t worry you can totally use this pizza dough recipe instead!

Back to the pre-made crescent dough…

Roll out your dough onto a  prepared cookie sheet and with it make one big square. Pop this into a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until it is golden brown.

While our crescent (or pizza) dough is baking, let’s mix together our ranch dip.

Don’t worry, we’re going to make this part from scratch!

Start with 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream cheese…

1/2 cup of buttermilk…

A palmful of fresh chopped chives…

Fresh chopped parsley…

Fresh chopped dill…

And one clove of  minced garlic.

Want your ranch dip to be a little spicy?  A few drops of your favorite hot sauce should do the trick!

Add a touch of salt and pepper…

Then mix, mix, mix!

Taste just like those ranch packets but only better huh?!

Once your pastry is done and cooled go ahead a smear your dip right on top!

So when I thought about the kind of veggies I wanted to use here I played with the idea of being super fancy foodie about it.

But then I remembered that I had just made ranch dressing and the veggies that pair well with ranch are pretty darn obvious!

Shredded carrots…

A few sliced radishes…

And some diced cucumber!

Let’s save the kale for another time.

Slice this yummy appetizer into squares and don’t ever feel guilty about using pre-made crescent dough!

Enjoy!
