In my humble opinion if a recipe has either bacon, chocolate or cream cheese…it has to be good! This recipe calls for cream cheese! The cheesecake-like filling is easy to make and it uses pie crust…put it all together and it’s a quick yummy treat! Perfect for a party or just for a bite sized treat!

Enjoy!

*I made this gluten free by using the Pillsbury gluten-free pie crust. It’s a newer product that in the refrigerated section near the other rolls. The tub is a little pricey in my opinion but very convenient! It’s nice to see more GF products!
