Valentine Pimento Pops

Happy Valentine's Day!
What do you do to celebrate this holiday?  Do you make reservations?  Do you make a fancy dinner at home, or just another regular day???
I usually make a nice fancy dinner at home.
I think I can only remember one time we went out to dinner, it was so crazy busy.
This year will be spent at home.  Not sure what I will be making for dinner yet but we will be starting off with these adorable sweet little Pimento Valentine's day pops.

What you need:
1 cup Cabot Chipotle Cheese, shredded
1 cup Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar Cheese, shredded
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayo
2 Tablespoons black olives, chopped
2 Tablespoons pimentos, chopped
1/4 tsp garlic salt
A dash of salt & pepper
1 egg, whites only
2 Packages crescent dough
White Popsicle sticks, you can find these at the grocery store in the baking section, cooking store or party supply store.

How to make them:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.

Soften the cream cheese, shred your cheeses.

Combine the cheese, seasonings, black olives and pimentos.
You will have extra, spread it on a cracker!

Flour your work surface.
Lay out your crescent dough, press the the divided areas together, sealing them together as best you can.
Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, make several hearts of the dough, you're going to need 2 per pop.
Lay down one heart, place a popsicle stick in the heart, on top of that spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of pimento cheese.

Lay another heart on top of the cheese filling, take a fork press and seal the pop shut.
This is actually a cocktail fork

Brush the edges and the top of the crescent heart with egg white.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes
Let them sit a few minutes before serving.

Hope you enjoy!!!
