bacon, jalapeño and cream cheese pinwheels

I can’t resist a good appetizer! So I’m thinking about adding the occasional “Foodie Friday” post on here, cause you can’t go wrong with drinks AND snacks right?

Bacon, cream cheese AND jalapeños? Does it get any better? My only tip on this recipe is don’t skimp on the cream cheese because I found a lot of it absorbed into the pastry and mine ended up a little dry the first time.
