Next crack the egg into a separate small bowl and whisk well. Measure out 2 tbsp of egg and add to the feta herb mixture along with 1 tbsp of parmesan cheese.

Roll out the crescent dough and press perforations together. Cut into 24 squares.

Now place a small amount of the cheese herb mixture in each of the squares.

Next fold the crescent dough over the cheese into triangle shapes and place on a baking sheet.
