3-ingredient pepper jelly bites by Mama Steph


Crescent roll dough or puff pastry dough

cream cheese

Jalapeno jelly

Optional: cooked bacon


Heat oven to 375. Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.

Open the crescent roll dough, and lay it on a cutting board. If you have bought the kind that is perforated to make crescent rolls with, use your fingers to press the holes closed.

Cut the rectangle of dough into 24 squares.

Place each square into a cup of the muffin tin to make a “pie shell.”

Drop a cube of cream cheese into each pie shell.

Bake nine to ten minutes at 375, until edges of the pastry is golden brown.

Allow to cool in pan for five minutes, then remove to a tray or plate.

Drop a half teaspoon or so of the jalapeno jelly on top of the cream cheese.

Top with a small piece of cooked bacon, if desired.
