Jalapeno Popper Pinwheels

  • 1 can (8oz) crescent roll dough
  • 1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 large jalapeno, finely chopped and seeds removed
  • 1 tbsp sugar
Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. 

Unroll the dough and firmly press together the seams.

In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar, jalapeno and sugar. Spread the mixture evenly over the dough.

Carefully roll it up along the long side, to create a long log. Cut the log into 24 pieces. I found it easiest to cut it into 8 even logs and then cut each of those into three pieces.

Place the pieces on a tin foil lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve them up warm. 

Make ahead tip: You can make the dough earlier in the day. Cut the long log in half and wrap each half in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate until you're ready to bake them.
