Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Mix first 3 ingredients until blended.

Bake 15 min. or until golden brown. Cool 1 min. before removing from baking sheet. Serve warm.
For Added Heat
Sprinkle pinwheels lightly with ground red pepper (cayenne) before baking.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
Jalapeño pepper heat levels can vary depending on many factors, such as the age of the pepper, how many seeds are in the pepper, and when and where the pepper was grown. When using jalapeños in recipes, feel free to adjust the measure of the peppers according to your personal preference.
