How to Store
These Blueberry Cream Cheese Crescent Bombs are best eaten warm on the same day. If you need to save some leftovers, be sure to wrap them tightly and store in the refrigerator. 
How to Freeze 
To freeze, assemble the dough with the toppings and freeze them on a baking sheet until solid. Once solid, add them to either an air-tight freezer bag or container. To bake these, add an additional 2 minutes to the baking time. Ice them after you bake them for best results.
