Blue Bites

1 (15-oz.) pkg. Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crusts, softened as directed on package
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled blue cheese
3 tablespoons half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup walnut pieces or halves
1/2 cup small fresh parsley sprigs

Heat oven to 375°F. Remove crusts from pouches; unfold crusts. With 2 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 12 rounds from each crust. Press each round in bottom and up sides of ungreased miniature muffin cup.

In medium bowl, combine cream cheese and blue cheese; beat until smooth. Add half-and-half, salt and egg; blend well. Spoon 1 scant tablespoon mixture into each crust-lined muffin cup. Top each with 2 walnut pieces or 1 walnut half.

Bake at 375°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until filling is set and crust is light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Garnish with parsley.
