turning to coat surface. Cover with damp towel and let stand in warm
draft-free area 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350øF. Grease baking sheets. Combine cheese,
tomatoes and basil in bowl. Divide dough into 8 pieces. Shape each
into smooth round. Roll each out on lightly floured surface to
thickness of 1/4 to 1/8 inch. Spoon some of cheese mixture down
center of each round. Fold one side over filling; press edges to
seal. Arrange cresents on prepared sheets. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake until cheese has melted and pastry is golden brown, about 40
minutes. Serve hot.
