Jalapeno Pillows

Quick and easy semi-homemade appetizer from Pillsbury!

Let your imagination be the guide to ingredients like changing the type of cheese used, add some chicken or whatever meat you like, change the jalapeno peppers to roasted red peppers, etc.


12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese 
(6 oz)1/2 cup diced fresh jalapeƱo chiles (or to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 egg


Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, chiles, salt, pepper and garlic powder until well combined. Set aside.

Separate dough into 8 biscuits. With rolling pin, roll out each biscuit into about 1/8-inch-thick round. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese filling onto center of each. Bring up dough around filling; pinch to seal tightly. Place seam side down on ungreased cookie sheet.

To make egg wash, beat egg with splash of water. Brush tops of stuffed biscuits with some of the egg wash. Sprinkle tops with additional salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and firm. Serve warm.

Would it work to use a puff pastry or homemade pizza dough instead of the bought biscuit dough?

Love the idea for puff pastry!! Yes! AWESOME, I love using puff pastry! I'm sure it would work :)

Pizza dough would work too.

Both variations would require altering cooking times and temperature.
