Creamy Jalapeno Popper Monkey Bread

Forget about that diet! It's monkey bread time


2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
cup canned sliced jalapeƱo chiles, drained
packages (3 oz each) cream cheese, softened
tablespoons butter, melted
cup cornmeal
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

  • 1Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray. Unroll each can of dough into 1 large rectangle; if using crescent roll dough, press perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle into 8 rows by 3 rows, to make 24 pieces per rectangle (48 pieces of dough total).
  • 2Place chile slice on center of dough piece; top with about 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese. Pull corners up, and pinch to seal; roll into a ball. Holding seam side down, brush top and sides with butter. Roll in cornmeal, and place seam side down in pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Drizzle remaining butter on top.
  • 3Bake 23 to 27 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cool 1 minute. Serve warm.

  • Don’t have a cast-iron skillet? Bake in a 9- or 8-inch glass baking dish 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center.
    A pizza cutter works great to cut the dough into pieces super-fast!

    Here's some cooking music to get you in the mood!
