It is extremely easy to make, so no excuses about complexity or time!
Is the pepper jelly spicy?
You will taste a little hint of spice, but it’s jelly, so the spiciness is masked by the sweetness of the jelly. Even more- the cream cheese really cuts through the spiciness; and the spiciness pairs perfectly with the croissant bread and cream cheese. STAY WITH ME HERE! I assure you, the pepper jelly belongs, so whatever you do, do not omit it! In all honesty, I didn’t even pay attention to the “gourmet jelly” section at the grocery stores- but there is such a thing!
What kind of crackers should I use?
Our favorite crackers to go with the pepper jelly cream cheese dip are wheat thins. Simply because they are a sturdy cracker, that can hold up to the dipping forces involved in consuming this dip! Seriously though, you want a sturdy cracker, not one that will easily break when trying to dip into that bread and cheese. Any cracker will do though, you decide, or use your favorite.
Roll out crescent rolls so that they are flat. Do not separate them. They should be one large sheet of dough.
Place block of cream cheese in the center of the dough. Using a spoon, slightly press the cream cheese out to flatten it a bit. Fold up the bottom edge to the center of the cream cheese.
Next, fold the top edge down to to the middle, overlapping the dough is okay, and actually ideal.
Bring the sides in to the middle, and gently press all of the dough together to close it up.
Place the dough in a lightly greased baking dish and bake in the oven on 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes. Slather the pastry with the pepper jelly of your choice. Serve with crackers, or eat alone with just the crescent bread.
