Steps

  • 1 Heat 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).
  • 2 Place 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.
  • 3 Bake 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.

Expert Tips

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!
