Quick Jalapeno Poppers

My husband loves jalapeno poppers. And while I know how to make them...I usually just end up buying frozen ones from the store to save time. So when I saw these cheater poppers on Pinterest I had to give them a try! I have to admit that I never actually read the recipe. I just saw the picture and put it together myself. So they might have some better ideas on there. This is just what I tried. We had them for New Year's eve and I will definitely be making them again. They were very quick to make and were a big hit! Give them a try!

Quick Jalapeno Poppers
8 oz. cream cheese
2 packs crescent rolls (Or make your own dough Here's my recipe: Butterhorns)
2 to 3 fresh jalapenos (I only used to 2 but next time I would probably do 3 so that they were a littler hotter)
6 pieces cooked bacon (I used the precooked kind that you can microwave)

Cook bacon and crumble. Remove seeds from jalapenos and chop into bite sized pieces. Seperate dough into triangles. In the middle of each triangle place a dollop of cream cheese, 2 pieces of jalapeno, and part of the crumbled bacon. Fold all three triangle into the center and pinch edges closed. (I kind of rolled it like I was making a crescent roll and then pinched the other corners in. Basically you can form it however you want...just make sure it's totally closed so the filling doesn't bake out) Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
