  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 24 miniature muffin cups with cooking spray. Unroll dough onto work surface. Press seams together and form into 13x7 1/2-inch rectangle. With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares.
  • 2
    Press 1 dough square into each miniature muffin cup. Cut cheese into 24 cubes. Place one cube of cheese in bottom of each dough-lined cup.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 3 minutes; use metal spatula to loosen edges, and remove from pan. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jelly on top of each cup to serve.

Expert Tips

  • To easily cut cream cheese, freeze the block for 15 minutes until slightly firm, then cut into cubes. For clean cuts, run a knife under hot water and dry with a paper towel between cuts.
  • Swap the hot pepper jelly for bacon jam or another savory or sweet jam of your choice.
  • For best results, serve bites warm or at room temperature.
