Party Recipe: Baked Jalapeño Popper Pockets

Party recipe: Baked jalapeño popper pockets

I made these a while back for Super Bowl Sunday (along with the red velvet brownies), and was happy to see them disappear quickly.

For me, these are exactly what party food should be: satisfying, fatty, fun, bite-sized, and easy to make.

Ingredients:

1 tube Pillsbury crescent-roll dough

About 8 Tbsp cream cheese

1 large jalapeño

Step 1. Cut the cream cheese into 8 equal squares and the jalapeño into into 8 equal slices.

Step 2. Unroll the crescent-roll dough and place a square of cream cheese in the middle of each triangle, topping with a jalapeño slice.

Step 3. Tear each triangle of dough free at its perforated edge, and twist the corners up and together, forming small pockets and completely sealing off the cream cheese and jalapeño slices inside.

Step 4. Bake according to the crescent-roll directions.
