These simple little pinwheels are quick to whip up. The sweetness of the cream cheese and sugar pair nicely with the spiciness of the jalapeños and saltiness of the bacon.
Use one package of refrigerator croissant dough. Break it in two and place each rectangle down on a baking sheet. Press the seams together or use a small roller to smooth the seams.
Mix together one brick of softened cream cheese, one or two slices of crumble cooked bacon, 1 Tbsp. of sugar, and 1/2 a diced jalapeño. If you want these to be less spicy, you can remove the seeds from the jalapeño. I am a fan of spicy food, so I always keep the seeds in.
Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the rectangles of dough. Roll the rectangles on the long side and then slice into pieces about one inch wide.
Be sure to leave a bit of space in between the pieces as they will spread as they cook. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden and serve.
