Jalapeno Poppers

I love being invited to my friend Jennifer's house.  She is one of the best cooks I know.  Jenn puts out a spread like no one I know, and everything is a newer recipe. I have no idea how she finds the time to make 6 new menu items...I usually am brave enough to add one new recipe when I am inviting guests over. Everyone devoured this appetizer.  It was easy and used 3 ingredients that actually are usually in the house.  This is a great last minute appetizer when you find out someone will be popping-in.


  • 6 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1 can of chopped jalapeno (depending on how hot you like things you may use anywhere between half and the entire 4 oz. can)
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 can of crescent rolls

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix cream cheese, jalapenos, and 1 T sugar in a mixing bowl.  Incorporate well.  (Add jalapenos slowly to taste).
  3. Separate crescent rolls into two rectangles; roll over perforations.
  4. Spread mixture; roll into a log starting with long side of rectangle.  Cut each log in halves until you end up with 16 pinwheels per rectangle.
  5. Place on cookie sheet; bake 13-15 minutes, until golden.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10 minute prep; 15 minute baking time
