My Favorite Fall Recipe EVER!!!!

The super-talented and oh so inspiring Elsie Flanagan is having a give away on her blog if you post your favorite fall recipe. This one is so yummy! My brother makes it every year after Thanksgiving with the leftover turkey. I can't wait until Thanksgiving, I think I'll have to make it before then! :)

Turkey Cranberry Wreath

2 pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 C. mayonnaise
2 T. honey Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
2 C. cooked turkey, chopped
1/2 C. celery, sliced
3 T. fresh parsley, snipped
1/2 C. dried cranberries
4 oz. Swiss cheese, shredded (1cup)
1/4 C. walnuts, chopped (optional) but I DEFINITELY include them!!!
1 egg, separated

1) Preheat oven to 375*F.
2) In bowl, combine turkey, 1 cup of the cheese, celery, green onion if using, cranberries, parsley, mayonnaise, mustard and black pepper. Mix well. Set aside.
3) Unroll the 2 packages of crescent rolls; separate into 16 triangles in a circle on a large pizza pan or stone with wide ends 3 inches from the edge of pizza pan and points towards the outside. Points will extend off the edge of the pan(depending on size). Arrange the remaining triangles in the center of the pan, matching wide ends with triangles already in placed. The points will overlap in center.
4) Using small rolling pin(or small round jar or drinking glass), roll over seams of triangles where wide ends meet, making a smooth surface for filling. Don't seal center triangles.
5) Using an ice cream scoop, scoop filling evenly over the dough in a continuous circle.
6) Beginning with the last triangle placed in center of pizza pan, bring point of triangle straight across filling. Next, bring point of the opposite outside triangle diagonally across filling, covering point of previous triangle. The filling will show.
7) Repeat, overlapping points of inside and outside triangles to form a wreath. Tuck the last end under first.
8) Brush top of wreath with egg white.
9) Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
10) Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
