Taco Puffs

I found this recipe over at Tried and True Cooking with Heidi a while back and was finally able to make it. I put this on our menu a couple weeks back but was unable to make it because the cans of crescents exploded in the car on the way home from the grocery store....that's our million degree AZ heat for ya'. Then I put it on the menu for this week and managed to drop one of the cans of crescents while putting groceries away and it popped open!!! So we had to have it last night so the dough wouldn't go to waste...AGAIN!
My kids don't typically eat tacos but they sure did eat these. They were really yummy and had a hint of sweetness from the crescent. We will definitely be making these again. Thanks Heidi!

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 envelope taco seasoning
2 tubes refrigerated crescent
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Cool slightly. Unroll crescents leaving 2 crescents together to form a square. Press seems together and place in a greased cookie sheet. Spoon 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each; sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Pull crescent dough around the filling and pinch edges to seal tightly. Bake at 400° for 13 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8.
