Baked Fontina Cranberry Melts

I don't know what rock I've been under but this past Christmas is the first time I tried Fontina cheese.
OMG it just melts in your mouth, I love that cheese!
I think these are a classy little bite for any party.
Well maybe not your 5 year old's birthday party ;)

Here is what you need:
2 9oz crescent roll packages
1 oz Fontina, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2oz thinly slices prosciutto diced
1 Teaspoons of chopped rosemary
1/3 cup dried cranberries or cherries , chopped
1 Tablespoon of sugar

How to make them:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Press contents of one can on crescent dough onto parchment paper to form a 9x12 inch rectangle, taking care to seal seams of the dough
Top dough with Fontina, prosciutto, dried berries, 1/2 of the rosemary & sugar
On another sheet of parchment, press remaining can of dough into a 9x12 inch rectangle.
Using parchment paper, transfer dough to cover cheese mixture.
Carefully peel away parchment paper.
Press seams closed
Sprinkle with remaining rosemary& sugar.
Bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden brown
Remove from oven , let them stand for 5-10 minute before serving
Cut into 12 squares then cut each square in half diagonally
This should make 24 pieces
