Ok, you have permission to cheat here and just buy the pre-made crescent roll dough… We won't tell if you don’t.
Stir yeast into water until fully dissolved. Mix in shortening, sugar, salt, eggs, and half of the flour. Beat in a mixing bowl until dough is consistent throughout and has no clumps. Stir the other half of the flour into the mix. Knead the dough into a ball , cover, and set aside on the counter for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and fold in The Bacon Jams All Original Spreadable Bacon. Cover and refrigerate.
Preheat Oven to 375. After the dough has risen flatten it with your fist. Separate the dough into two parts. Roll each piece into a circle then spread half of the butter onto them. Using a knife cut the each circle into 10 pieces or wedges. ( If you used the store bought rolls [ not judging ] just lay out the pieces.) Place 1 oz of The Bacon Jams cream cheese and bacon stuffing near the shortest side of each wedge. Do not place stuffing further than a ⅓ of the way down the wedge. Roll the the dough up stuffing side toward the point at the end. Curl each piece into a crescent shape without breaking the dough. Set them aside to rise for 45 minutes or until them have doubled in size again. Gently butter the tops of the pieces. Place the pieces point side up on a lightly oiled baking sheet and set in the oven for 15 -20 minutes.
Note: If you used pre made dough follow the baking instructions on the package.
